GAIN is Los Angeles County's highly successful welfare-to-work program for families receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, or TANF.
A Job, A Better Job, A Career...this is the message we deliver to our GAIN participants every day; that finding and keeping an entry-level job is a training ground to a better job and a career.
Our Job Developers are located all over Los Angeles County. They take pride in doing whatever it takes to connect businesses like yours with individuals who are ready, willing and able to work. And they want to help you!
All of our services are FREE.
When you're ready to hire, we're ready to help - Our candidates are prepared and available for interviews on short notice.
We can save you time and money by pre-screening applicants to meet your specific needs.
We conduct Job Fairs that feature a large number of highly qualified participants on hand for your evaluation. At our Job Fairs, you can conduct interviews and hire on the spot!
Working with GAIN is a rewarding experience.
We continue to work with participants after they go to work for you.
- It is rewarding to your company's bottom line when you employ GAIN candidates. We put you in touch with potential employees who have child care benefits and health care coverage in place when you hire them.
- It is rewarding to your company's productivity to hire the qualified, enthusiastic individuals you will meet through GAIN.
- It is also rewarding to be part of a national effort committed to helping families in our community become self-sufficient.
GAIN believes job readiness and career mobility are ongoing efforts. Our GAIN Case Managers keep in touch with the participants you hire, providing support, resources and information to help them realize their full potential.
Tax credits, such as the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and the Welfare-to-Work Tax Credit, offer attractive tax benefits for your participation in the welfare-to-work effort.
