JOBS Program

DHR's welfare to work program, called the JOBS Program, is administered by the Family Assistance Division and is operational in every county DHR office. State and county staff have developed numerous initiatives to address the problems faced by welfare families. [Click here to view map of Alabama to find the Family Assistance office nearest you.]

Many of the families that remain on welfare face multiple barriers to employment including substance abuse, domestic violence, low education, and poor access to jobs. These individuals face serious barriers to employment. JOBS case managers can help in many ways, either through provision of direct services listed below, or by referral to other agencies such as the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
