Assisting individuals to prepare for the workforce through career counseling, short-term training, and support services.
The purpose of the Center for Workforce Development is to assist families in overcoming employment barriers and in gaining financial stability through education, training, and case management services. The Center offers a job readiness program to TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) recipients in Arapahoe County.
Welfare-to-Work TANF Program
Arapahoe County refers TANF recipients to the Center for Workforce Development. Recipients participate in academic programs, career counseling courses, and work experience programs to gain job training and skills needed to transition from TANF to employment. In addition, TANF recipients receive case management services to assist in the transition and help promote self-sufficiency. Supportive services are provided through individual case management.
