Schuylkill Community Action no longer provides this program.

Barrier Remediation

SCA offers a specialized barrier remediation service, called the Work Ready Program, which helps individuals overcome obstacles to self-sufficiency.


Work Ready Program

The Work Ready Program offers a full-family assessment. Work Ready Services focus on the management of the family’s mental health, rehabilitation, social support, and other needs. Once barriers are stabilized, a client may become work ready.

This program provides classroom and community activities to recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in Schuylkill County. These activities focus on participants’ strengths rather than on their barriers to self-sufficiency.
