Families Actively Engaged in Meaningful Employment (FAME): We began our FAME program in 2014. This program is focused on engaging individuals receiving public assistance and needing to complete mandated job activities as determined by federal and state requirements. A monthly sample of individuals not completing their required hours are reported to the State and then the County. Once they are identified, they are referred to our program.
FAME provides case management, subsidized transitional employment for up to 30 days, and job search assistance for individuals wanting to engage further.
FAME serves 100-150 individuals annually and places 15-20% of these individuals into competitive employment. This FAME program is limited to 30 days of employment.
