"The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) has prepared this brief history of civil legal assistance for the low-income community in the United States, from its privately funded beginnings, through its achievement of federal funding, to its expansion and growth into a national program operating throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and former U.S. territories in the South Pacific. We also describe some of the political battles that have been fought around the legal services program and the restrictions that have come with government funding"--Introduction

Transitional child care : state experiences and emerging policies under the Family Support Act by Nancy Ebb( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This guide is designed to provide information about transitional child care (tcc) program policies and operations and to offer recommendations to policymakers and advocates. Transitional child care is a new federal child care program that every state must implement by April 1, 1990. Established by the Family Support Act (fsa) of 1988, tcc is designed to help families with dependent children meet their child care needs for one year after they lose federal or state financial assistance for income-related reasons. Recommendations are based on information from nine states with transitional child care programs that predate fsa requirements; extensive discussions with officials and advocates; and a review of 30 state plans for transitional child care programs. Sections of the guide concern: (1) the process of becoming eligible for transitional child care, and the related issues of notification, outreach, the request and approval process, verification, and reporting; (2) things to consider after eligibility is established, including child care counseling and location services, payment rates and policies, choice of a payment mechanism, and a sliding fee scale; and (3) long-range issues, including budgeting adequate funds, learning from experience, and arranging for child care after tcc participation. Appendices provide federal regulations on TCCs and an overview of voucher and contracted payment mechanisms. (Rh)

The language of opportunity : expanding employment prospects for adults with limited English skills by Heide Spruck Wrigley( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This paper describes the demographics and economic circumstances of low income adults with limited English proficiency (lep), noting the language and job training services available to them and providing recommendations for policy and practice that would increase opportunities to gain access to higher paying jobs. More then eight million working-age U.S. adults speak English poorly or not at all. Most are immigrants representing a wide range of countries. Over the next 2 decades, the percentage of lep workers will continue to increase with continued growth in immigration and the aging of the native-born workforce. Many immigrants lack education credentials and have low levels of literacy. They are concentrated in low-wage work and may live in poverty. Available research shows that the best programs to deliver English language, literacy, and job training combine job training with basic skills instruction or provide a mix of services. Recommendations for program design include: creating programs that combine language and literacy services with job skills training; creating career pathways for lep adults; considering the merits of bilingual job training in areas where English is not necessary for job training; and offering short-term bridge programs that transition participants to job training and higher education more quickly. Several programs that illustrate some of these promising practices are described in the appendix. (Contains 99 endnotes.) (Sm)
