Welfare Transition Programs

The Welfare Transition program provides emphasis on work, self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, as well as opportunities for welfare recipients from welfare to work.  The support structure includes services such as: employment programs, job training, child care and transportation assistance; diversion program to reduce domestic violence and child abuse, diversions to prevent families from going on welfare as well as relocation assistance.
