Women to Work
A Job Readiness Employment Program
The Women to Work program is for women in Spokane who are actively looking for employment. With the support from BFET (Basic-Food, Employment and Training) funds, the Women to Work program can help remove or reduce barriers to employment, in-turn creating a more open pathway to securing and retaining employment.
Who Is The Program For
This program is supported by BFET funds which assists individuals who are experiencing barriers to employment and who are not currently receiving TANF services. Barriers might include homelessness, domestic violence, mental and physical disabilities, poverty, lack of childcare, and transportation issues.
How to Qualify
In addition to actively looking for work, qualifying participants must be receiving DSHS (Department of Social and Health Services) food benefits or EBT Card funds, and are not currently receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families).
