SIERRA VISTA — A program that gives the homeless a chance to work and get paid in cash took off on Wednesday morning as four individuals armed with gloves, garbage bags and other tools attacked a littered field just west of Veterans Memorial Park.

With a large city dumpster as their backdrop, the four men labored in the cold, picking up loads of trash — including discarded needles — strewn across a small swath of desert just off Fry Boulevard and Moorman Avenue.
