Reach Higher Welfare program gives second chance at life

Posted: Updated:
Bowling Green, KY -

Life can often throw us an unexpected curve-ball.

But there's one program in Bowling Green that catches certain individuals when they fall.

The Housing Authority of Bowling Green offers this program, and is a "hub of hope" for the community.

And one of their programs not only educates, but demonstrates it's never too late to have the life you want.

That's with the Reach Higher Welfare to Work job training program.

The program is made possible through a partnership funded by the Department of Community Based Services.

Operating for 22 years now, the goal of the program is to remove barriers for individuals in the community.

Those individuals are men and women who receive K-TAP assistance.

Lasting 6 months, the program gives them a job for 30 hours per week.

On Fridays, they attend job training classes.

Making minimum wage, they also receive workman's comp and are on payroll.

They also receive supportive services, like if their car breaks down or they need insurance.

That gets taken care of.

If they need clothing for interviews, the program takes care of that as well.

Challenges many of us face.

But wasn't enough for one graduate of this program to give up.

Amanda Monroe, who graduated from the program on May 1st.

The same day Monroe graduated, she was offered a job as the Service Coordinator for the elderly and disabled at the HABG.

Monroe is proof the program works and can change your life instantly.
