Knowing all of your options for assistance can make employment setbacks less challenging. If receiving General Assistance (GA) is one of your options, it is always assuring to know what you may expect.
GA services can make employment setbacks less challenging. While GA is most often associated with food and monetary assistance, recipients of GA are also granted access to employment services. Such employment services focus on such topics as:
- job training
- job search skills
- employment referrals
WorkFirst New Jersey (WFNJ) employment-directed activities provide employment education and training services for people who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and GA. Services include employment counseling, assessment, job search assistance, work experience, on-the-job training, vocational education, basic education skill development, computer literacy training, and other services to help WFNJ recipients find and keep a job.
