Thanks for this...I really enjoy your blogs on this issue and particularly identified with your comment about "simplified" training for TANF recipients...through our work at The Women's Foundation, and more specifically the work of our Grantee Partners, many of whom do employment training for low-income women, we are finding that indeed programs that teach basic skills--while also, of course, providing appropriate social support (transport, child care, etc.) can drastically change lives and the economic situations of these women and their families.

Thanks for your thinking on this and reminding us that empowerment can certainly come just from seeing basic needs and gaps and filling them--rather than focusing on how "complex" or "different" or "new" an idea is.
