We are excited to announce that the TANF program will be sharing new Success Stories with you each quarter. There is much for which we can all be proud, thanks to the good work that TANF employees are doing throughout the state to give hope, confidence and new directions to clients’ lives. We begin this quarter by sharing 10 TANF clients’ outstanding success stories.
We are also proud to share an amazing video with you. It is stories like these that confirm that we are making real differences in the lives of our clients. Thanks goes to the vision of ADWS leadership and to the dedication of the local office employees whose good work impacts these clients’ lives each day.
Please continue to share your TANF success stories! And we will continue to highlight the incredible differences, we are making in the lives of our clients and for our state.
