How to Involve Employers in Welfare Reform

| Amy Brown, Maria L. Buck, Erik Skinner

This guide provides practical advice on engaging the business community in welfare reform. By describing the efforts of initiatives and programs across the country, it offers guidance for the public sector on how to engage the business community, for employers on how to integrate welfare recipients into their workforce, and for other interested parties on how to bridge the gap between welfare recipients and jobs. Since many of these strategies are new and as yet unproven, the guide presents a variety of approaches for readers to consider in developing their own partnerships.
