Toledo Area Private Industry Council SDA #9. Welfare Coordination Project. Final Report.
Toledo Area Private Industry Council, OH.
The Toledo Area Welfare Coordination Task Force, coordinated by the Private Industry Council and funded by the Job Training Partnership Act, brought together more than 20 community leaders representing private and public organizations that have a role to play in implementing the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) program in Lucas and Wood Counties, Ohio. From January through June 1990, the Task Force held 6 monthly meetings at which members learned the facts of the JOBS program from federal, state, and local sources; identified operational problems; coordinated efforts to avoid duplication; and set a goal of a coordinated, streamlined system of education, employment, and related supportive services. A consultant recommended continuing the Task Force and making it a focus of welfare reform and improved methods of service delivery. Work group actions and recommendations and the consultant's recommendations were recorded in the areas of access and employability planning, case management, marketing and job development, and research and information. An evaluation was made of the task force's accomplishments; 15 respondents ranked most achievements as average to good. (KC)
