Single Parent/Homemaker Transitional Support Center. Annual Report.
Women's and Family Programs Corp., Louisville, KY.
Operation of the 1989-90 Creative Employment Project, a regional transitional support center for adult single parents and displaced homemakers, resulted in increased entry rates for participants into vocational education programs. The program assisted participants in acquiring marketable skills and entering the work force. The objectives were achieved through prevocational orientation, career planning, vocational training support services, and job placement assistance. Services were provided on an outreach basis to over 100 single parents/displaced homemakers with the greatest financial need in six counties surrounding Jefferson County, Kentucky. Program funding increases were recommended in order to serve staffing needs at the existing demand for services. (Four attachments are included: a brochure, "Discover a Career That's Right for You"; an outline of Transitional Support Program modules; a letter from the Church of the Epiphany; and a letter from "Run, Jane, Run--Women In Sports.")
