dc.description.abstractThe Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996 represents a fundamental change in our country's approach to supporting families in economic need. Since the enactment of PRWORA, researchers have been studying the experiences of families as they attempt to transition from government assistance to various levels of increased self sufficiency. Of particular interest is how families with young children are faring in response to welfare reform. While many families with young children are experiencing success as they enter the work force, others are having more difficulty. Research findings indicate that the likelihood of making a successful transition is affected by the supports available to families and the barriers families face. Understanding the role of these supports and barriers is of critical importance to policymakers as re-authorization nears.eng
