LOS ANGELES : Project to Offer Training for Unemployed Parents

Unemployed parents whose children receive Aid to Families With Dependent Children will be eligible for counseling and job training under a newly implemented Parents Fair Share project outlined this week by state and local officials.

A demonstration project, the program will target areas affected by the 1992 riots and be paid for in part with money from the state Economic Development Department's $20-million Los Angeles Recovery allocation.

"By assisting people to obtain job skills, we empower them to pay their fair share of child support," a welfare official said.
