This program is federally funded and based on eligibility guidelines. To see if you're eligible, you can visit SC Works Columbia Center at 700 Taylor Street. You may also go to either our Lexington (803-359-6131) or Winnsboro (803-635-2812) SC Works Centers, please call them to see when this service is available. Bring with you the following:
1) Social Security Card (must have the CARD).
2) Photo Identification (like a Driver's License) with CORRECT address.
3) Paycheck Stub or other verification of income (if
you've worked in the
past 6 months).
Please be aware that you will not
likely be eligible for all the program's services if you are in default of a Student Loan, or if you are not registered with US Selective Services (if you are male and over the age of 18). This program provides intensive job search assistance. It is designed to help individuals from all walks of life re-enter the workforce. Case Managers work directly with you in your search for work. You will develop an Employment Plan with your Case Manager, and must remain in contact
with him/her throughout your enrollment in WIA and beyond. Personal commitment
is necessary to benefit from this program. Depending on availability and appropriateness, training may be provided if you are unable to find work where you are already
trained and/or experienced. The first mandate, however, is to help customers look for work in a field where they already have training or experience. Due to growing interest and demand, not all those who are eligible under federal guidelines will be enrolled into the program. An initial assessment will be done to determine the appropriateness of enrolling each person, based on their individual needs and our current resources.
