Job Retention

 The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.
Elbert Hubbard

The purpose of job retention services is to assist you in making the transition from welfare to work. To make this transition as smooth as possible, your Employment Social Worker will work with you by providing community resource referrals and encouragement even if you go off cash aid.

Getting a new job is no different from any other change. It starts out with uncertainty and it's even a bit scary. Stick with it and you will learn many new things about yourself and the world around you. You will gain experience that will help you move up in the job market.


You have worked hard to get this far and we are here to help you. We offer a variety of free and confidential services.

  • Supportive Services (Available up to six months after cash aid is discontinued for employment, if needed to help you keep your job.)

  • We can help with transportation costs by providing bus passes, and gas.

  • Supplies such as clothes, tools, and other work-related supplies that are needed to keep your job can be provided.

  • Counseling Services

  • If you have a problem that is affecting your ability to be an outstanding employee we can help with counseling or therapy for you.

  • Child Care

  • We may help you pay for some or all of your child care costs.

  • Provided up to 24 months after being discontinued from cash aid.

  • Job Coaching/Mentoring & Support

  • Does it seem like no one around you is as lost as you are?

  • Having trouble on the job with a co-worker or your boss?

  • Are you contributing to the team at work?

  • Do you feel overwhelmed?

  • Are you introducing yourself and remembering other people's names?

Don't Give Up! Don't Quit! 

We know it can be challenging for new employees to handle the stress of a new job and juggle the pressures of working and family life.  Let us help you. Call your Employment Social Worker.
