Turnaround Services - Displaced Homemaker
Western Technical College provides support services to students who are Displaced Homemakers. A Displaced Homemaker is an individual who has worked in the home for a substantial number of years, providing unpaid household services for family members, and who presently has a change in their family income because of separation, divorce, becoming widowed, or a disabled spouse.
After an initial meeting and the development of a Career/Employment Plan, students receive ongoing collaborative services which include personal, career, and economic counseling, case management, facilitation of economic resources, skill building assistance, resume building, and preparation for job interviews. Emergency transportation and childcare assistance is also provided to participants who qualify.
