The Department of Social Services offers families in crisis temporary ﬁnancial assistance through its TANF program. In order to help families regain ﬁnancial independence, DSS may require TANF recipients to participate in activities designed to lead to family success and financial independence.
TANF Family Success Coaches work with TANF recipients to customize a plan to remediate barriers to employment as quickly as possible. Upon remediation of barriers, locally established Workforce Consultants are assigned to assist with job preparation, employment readiness, and career exploration. Workforce Consultants work with hundreds of employers throughout South Carolina to connect job seekers with meaningful employment.
