Description:

Increasingly, the need to work and demonstrate personal responsibility are an integral part of the dialog revolving around safety net programs. This dialog began with welfare reform and the creation of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and continues today. Multiple benefits programs have work components, but the track records for these programs are not great, resources are limited, often low income individuals with multiple barriers to employment have been excluded. So, what can we as advocates for struggling individuals, families and communities do to get people living in poverty the services, supports, education and training they need to become employable and employed in jobs with family-sustaining wages? CORT’s two-day Employability conference will examine the opportunities and pitfalls of these programs, and discuss strategies we can use to make the programs designed to support and move low income people into work actually fulfill those goals.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us in Columbus, Ohio for this exciting and timely dialog. Presenters from CLASP, CBPP and the National Center for Economic Justice will be joining us. Don’t miss it! Registration details will follow.
