Poster Handle Ralph--a house dog
Post Content
Years ago, there was a program called "Futures" in my state. It required that a person on welfare to be placed in a skills assessment program and - if neccessary, schooling or other professional training. The whole time the person's benefits would remain intact.

Then - when training was finished, the state would provide ssistance with job placement, getting clothes and uniforms for work and interviews, provide resume assistance and interview training.

Once placed in a job, the state kept the person's benefits, (ie, medical, foodstamps, etc.), in place and provided child care as well for up to two years or until the person was able to get the medical benefits through their job, and pay for daycare on their own, etc....

I thought that was a terrific program and should have helped so many people get back on their feet.....where did that program go?

What a practical, effective way to give someone a boost up out of poverty! Sounds somewhat like the old federal Job Corps program, but this seems like it was better.

As for what happened to it, my guess is that it probably just made too much good sense so they scrapped it.
