This study examines the strategies that 11 purposively selected Welfare-to-Work (WtW) grantees used to design and implement their programs for non-custodial parents, usually fathers, including some of the mid-course corrections needed to improve services and client intake. It also summarizes lessons that can be learned from these efforts-- lessons that are applicable to the larger community of workforce development and social services agencies that would like to be more pro-active in serving low-income noncustodial parents. This study was undertaken to provide field-based information to WtW state and community-based grantees and other programs interested in serving low-income, non-custodial parents (NCP) on how some WtW grantees had successfully managed to design and implement a program addressing the employment and other service needs of NCPs.
