Services offered by this program include: vocational assessment, personal and career counseling, referrals for community assistance, job search skills workshops, job search assistance and referrals for vocational training. The program is open to any displaced homemaker. (A displaced homemaker is defined as a person whose primary job was caring for the family but now through death, divorce or disability of his or her partner must become the primary wage earner. The person may have been either unemployed or underemployed during the time he or she was a homemaker, as long as the homemaker was dependent upon another person for financial support. Persons formerly dependent upon government programs such as TANF may also qualify as displaced homemakers.) The program is housed in the TMCC Re-Entry Center, which offers assistance to special populations who are returning to school and/or the workplace, is dedicated to helping these individuals become economically self-sufficient through education, vocational training and enhanced job search skills.
