We at the KEYS Program at Delaware County Community College appreciate the opportunity presented to us last Thursday when we met with Rep. Reed and other legislators to discuss our efforts to assist welfare recipients in transitioning to work.
It is important that we help TANF recipients achieve self- sufficiency and not just secure a job. KEYS believes that this can best be accomplished by a combination of education and skills training. ‘Job first should not be ‘job only’. To truly be independent of the welfare system, a participant must be on a career path with possibility of advancement. Thank you again for the chance to tell our story.
