Fixing to Change: A Best Practices Assessment of One-Stop Job Centers Working With Welfare Recipients. Chapter 6: Empirical Evidence of Success

Most analysts would agree that real success in moving welfare recipients to self-sufficiency should be measurable in terms of employment and wage outcomes. The data we have been able to gather on the one-stop models presented in this study do indicate that for the most part, these models have been at least partially successful. В However, these data also highlight some of the gaps and limitations in the One-Stop concept as it has been implemented so far. To the degree that most states' welfare reform programs and all of the models examined are still evolving, this by no means is a final commentary on the potential for one-stop centers to meet the needs of families moving from welfare to self-sufficiency.
