Services Provided or Description:  

Johnston County's Work First program helps put welfare recipients to work. The program provides a monthly check to families. The amount of the check depends on the number of individuals in the family and the amount of family income. There must be a child under age 18 in the home.

Work First provides:

  • Medicaid
  • short-term training (when needed)
  • transportation
  • child care
  • health care

Together, these services can provide a safety net that allows families to remain in the workforce and off the welfare rolls.

Hours:  8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday

Ages Served:  All

Eligibility:  

Work First requires parents to:

  • Sign personal responsibility contracts detailing their plans for getting off welfare.
  • Look for and accept work.
  • Ensure that their children are immunized and receive regular medical checkups.
  • Keep their children in school.
  • Cooperate with child support enforcement efforts.

Bilingual?  Bilingual services are available for all programs at Social Services.
