Welfare Programs

The Employment, Advancement and Retention Network (EARN) Program uses innovative strategies to provide job placement, retention, and advancement services to welfare clients. Services include individualized case management, assessment, job skills training, job readiness instruction, work experience, and job development, as well as support during the job retention phase.  The targeted population consists of individuals who are recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
