    Taxonomy Code: ND-6500.1850

    Programs that provide comprehensive support services for displaced homemakers who need assistance preparing for, finding and retaining paid employment. Services may include career readiness workshops, mentoring programs, vocational assessment, vocational counseling, job development, job training, job search assistance and a wide variety of support services such as life skills training, financial management assistance, support groups and referrals for other specific needs. Displaced homemakers are individuals (primarily women) who, in their middle and later years, having fulfilled the role of homemaker, find themselves displaced because of dissolution of marriage, death of a spouse, or other loss of family income. As a consequence, displaced homemakers have a greatly reduced income, a high rate of unemployment due to age, lack of paid work experience and discrimination, and limited opportunities to collect assistance from social security, unemployment compensation, Medicaid and other health insurance benefits, or the pension plans of their spouse.
