Under a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Center Point has recently implemented the comprehensive METT project to assist TANF (i.e., Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) eligible and other hard-to-place clients transition successfully from Welfare-to-Work. While vocational services have always been an integral part of Center Point's treatment continuum, and the cornerstone of re-entry services, this new program expands our vocational services from a component of treatment into a major program in its own right. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate innovative ways in which difficult-to-employ individuals can be transitioned from welfare dependence to employment.
Specialized services including primary health care and mental health services; vocational rehabilitation services (both to support treatment and "dependency to sufficiency" Welfare-to-Work employment programs); housing services (both temporary emergency shelters and transitional housing programs, i.e., acute respite and long-term affordable); and education, training and consulting services for the general public, private companies, and public agencies.
In-Custody Therapeutic Community Programs:
In-custody Therapeutic Community programs with linked aftercare for inmates in four California State Prisons.
Center Point offers rehabilitation and treatment services that interrupt the abusive cycles of psychological, social, and economic dislocation by providing critical training and support so that individuals and families can claim self-worth and dignity.
