Re-Entry Center

Re-Entry Center

The TMCC Re-Entry Center offers assistance to special populations who are returning to school and/or the workplace.

The Center, which is primarily funded by TMCC as well as federal, state and private grants, is dedicated to helping these individuals become economically self-sufficient through education, vocational training and enhanced job search skills. Assistance is offered through the following programs.

Perkins III Educational Partnership Program

Special populations served by this program include single parents and displaced homemakers. Those admitted to the program must be pursuing vocational education which leads to a high skill, high wage occupation or employment.

Services offered are: academic advising, vocational assessment, counseling (personal and career), work experience, job search assistance, and referrals for instructional assistance and community resources. Program participants may also request financial assistance for the following: tuition, books, child care, instructional supplies, and transportation costs.

To qualify, candidates must present appropriate documentation of special population status.

Displaced Homemaker Program of Washoe County

Displaced homemakers of any economic level may receive support services to assist them in job search and placement. Services offered by this program include: vocational assessment, personal and career counseling, referrals for community assistance, job search skills workshops, job search assistance and referrals for vocational training.

The program is open to any displaced homemaker. A displaced homemaker is defined as a person whose primary job was caring for the family but now through death, divorce or disability of his or her partner must become the primary wage earner. The person may have been either unemployed or underemployed during the time he or she was a homemaker, as long as the homemaker was dependent upon another person for financial support. Persons formerly dependent upon government programs such as TANF may also qualify as displaced homemakers.

The Re-Entry Center provides a wide variety of services for special population students. For more information regarding services, eligibility standards, or application procedures please contact us.
