Designing a Family-Centered, Housing-Based Employment Program.
Kramer, Fredrica D.
Design Brief, v1 n1 Apr 2000
This publication is designed to help TANF [Temporary Assistance for Needy Families] agencies create specific program interventions to serve TANF recipients in place-based (in particular, housing-based) programs that help welfare recipients find and keep jobs. TANF programs increasingly serve welfare recipients with multiple barriers to steady employment, who may require many types of services and interventions. The brief provides an overview of the following topics: supportive work environment, effective use of community connections, support services, staffing, space, and funding. Examples from successful programs are provided. A list of 25 references and 8 resource contacts is included. (KC)
