    Programs that place people in actual employment situations in order to give them an opportunity to demonstrate their competence and skills, gain practical experience in a field for which they have been trained and/or develop new skills that will be beneficial with respect to future employment opportunities. People are placed on a short-term basis and, if remuneration is involved, are paid by the sponsoring agency rather than by the employer or through a cost-sharing arrangement.

    Life'sWork of Western PA - Work Ready ProgramWork Ready (WR) Program assists individuals who are on TANF to become self-sufficient. Work Ready assists individuals in gaining job skills as well as job placement. Through enrollment individuals are provided with case management services that not only connect them with community resources to assist in removing barriers, but also assist in working on the soft skills that will make them more marketable to employers. There are two phases to WR, pre-placement and post-placement. Pre-Placement is the phase where an individual participates in state approved activities such as Community Service, Paid Work Experience, Education and Training and Job Search for a predetermined amount of hours each week. The individual remains in this phase until employment of 20 hours or more is obtained. Once employed for 20 or more hours the individual enters the post-placement phase where they remain for at least 6 months. During the post placement phase the Service Coordinator provides case management to assure the individual is transitioning positively into the workforce as well as providing support and resources. Once an individual has worked 6 consecutive months they have successfully completed the program.AlleghenyLife'sWork of Western PALife'sWork of Western PA
