GAIN (Greater Avenues for Independence)
LACOE operates the GAIN Program here in Lancaster. The GAIN Program helps communities in the Los Angeles area build economic self-sufficiency through gainful employment.
GAIN is part of a large-scale, welfare-to-work initiative program operating in every county in California. In L.A. County, the initiative is under the supervision of the Department of Public Social Services. It helps local businesses and employers find and hire quality workers who seek meaningful employment. Prospective workers are participants in the state welfare programs known as California Work Opportunities and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKS) or General Relief Opportunities for Work (GROW).
Each year, GAIN provides job-readiness and career planning services to 50,000 participants at 21 job club sites around the county.
