About Welfare Offices

WelfareOffices.org is the Internet's largest and most complete database of governmental and state or federally funded agencies dedicated to providing social welfare services to people in need. WelfareOffices.org is privately owned and is not affiliated with any of the organizations or agencies listed in the database. All details including contact information, hours, and services provided by these agencies is user-contributed and are not guaranteed to be accurate.

As a note: The federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation (PRWORA) Act was passed in 1996. This Act eliminated the open-ended federal welfare entitlement program, Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), and replaced it with the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. The TANF regulations, (45 CFR 260) include a requirement that recipients of TANF funds work or participate in work activities in exchange for time-limited assistance.
