First Step is a program that was developed in partnership with the Lorain County Department of Job and Family Services to provide assistance to needy families who are transitioning from government assistance to gainful employment. Topic areas include physical, mental, and emotional health, parenting skills, coping with stress, relationships, substance abuse and physical abuse.
“All I dreamed about was having a good, full time job, to be able to drive myself to work and not be dependent on others to drive me around or pay for things I needed. All of this has come true.”
Participants are men and women who are currently seeking employment and are clients of the Lorain County Department of Job and Family Services.
If you are a client at the Lorain County Job and Family Services Department and are interested in participating, please contact your Jobs Worker or Advocate.
