The Work Ready Program is in operation statewide and it’s run by Community Action Agencies. The program in partnership with the Department of Public Welfare is designed to provide a full range of employment and training services to TANF (temporary assistance to needy families) participants with limited employability. Due to the changing face of individuals receiving Public Assistance in today’s economy, recipients that enter the program may have a college degree and/or extensive work experience and only need additional support in order to re-enter the workforce. Some participants are referred to the program because they will be best served by the activities offered. All program participants are referred to Work Ready directly through the Department of Public Welfare by contractual obligation. The program provides a holistic assessment of each individual and takes into account all facets of the individual’s life. Although employment is the ultimate goal of the program, a myriad of other significant areas are covered while participants are attending.
