Evaluation of The Wage Center

The Center for Human Services Research has been selected by the Albany Housing Authority to perform an evaluation of The Wage Center.

The WAGE Center continues Albany Housing Authority's (AHA) focus on the core services that maximize the ability of residents to access opportunities that lead to self-sufficiency. Supplementing these core services are an array of educational, training and support opportunities provided by other partners that AHA has brought together to reinforce the self-sufficiency efforts by the clients. AHA residents and Housing Choice Voucher participants receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) are the targeted populations. The WAGE Center believes in an approach to self-sufficiency that addresses the needs of the whole person. When obstacles to employment or education are addressed, job seekers and students are more successfully prepared for the challenges of the workplace or educational environment.

Evaluation & Research

The evaluation will consist of process study and outcome study. The process study will identify the numbers and characteristics of the participant population and the nature of services being provided. The outcome study will identify if the programs operating under the Wage Center are achieving its goals: reducing barriers to employment, developing participant self-sufficiency, and increasing the employment of individuals being served.
