DC SNAP Employment and Training Program
The Work First Foundation Washington, DC food stamp program welcomes able bodied adults who face being out of work and out of eligible time on SNAP. To help families fight hunger, the Work First Foundation helps SNAP recipients with assistance in finding meaningful employment. In 2016 more than 125 adults signed up for job skill workshops. This includes an impressive range of older adults. 45participants who are over 50 joined to reshape their skills, resumes and attitudes for the modern job market.
Through our partnership with America Works, SNAP recipients are offered the opportunity to join a job placement, education , or job skill training program. These activities are critically important for able bodied working adults, who are limited to three months of SNAP benefits. The foundation helps these adults find employment opportunities to transition to self-sufficency.
