Who We Serve

Who Do Our Employment Training Programs Serve?

Individuals enrolled in Kansas Legal Services employment training programs are generally classified as “economically disadvantaged.” More specifically, this group includes:

  • Those on TAF (welfare) that are required to be enrolled in job-related activities as a prerequisite for cash assistance.

  • People considered “Dislocated Workers,” or those who have lost jobs through no fault of their own (such as plant closings or permanent layoffs).

  • People considered “Dislocated Homemakers,” or those (generally) women who were reliant upon a spousal income for financial support, but who no longer have that support due to some form of separation.

  • Individuals with disabling mental or physical conditions.
  • Low income individuals seeking to upgrade their skills in order to obtain a higher paying job.

  • Custom Computer Training is also available to businesses wishing to have an employee or a group of employees trained in a particular software application.
