The "Ins and Outs" of the Department of Workforce Services (DWS)
Knowing the “ins and outs” of employment related programs and services is often challenging. Since lack of employment can create a risk for families impacted by domestic violence, it is important that treatment providers have a general understanding of the resources available to assist families as they become self-reliant. This workshop will provide you with a general overview of the employment, career and education programs and services that the Department of Workforce Services offers along with the clinical service options for families eligible for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
- Attendees will gain an overview of DWS Services
- Attendees will gain an increased understanding of TANF and WOIA Programs
- Attendees will gain an increased understanding of clinical service options
