State Displaced Homemaker Program:

The State Displaced Homemaker Program is operated through the Works Services Division through the Montana Department of Labor and Industry and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. “The State Displaced Homemakers Program is intended to provide employment and training services to individuals who have been dependent upon someone else for support and who through death, disability of a spouse or divorce no longer have such support. Services for Displaced Homemakers include vocational counseling, job training and job search assistance. The purpose of the program is to intervene in an individual's life prior to their depletion of financial reserves. Intervening shortly after displacement prevents welfare dependence and helps attach them as quickly as possible to the labor market.”
