Summary

Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN), California's welfare reform program, provides education, job services, and support services to welfare recipients to promote self-sufficiency and eliminate welfare dependency. In 1989, a survey was conducted of all California community colleges to gather information on GAIN participants, services, and funding. Study findings included the following: (1) about 75% of California's 107 community colleges had GAIN participants in 1988-89; (2) colleges reported nearly eight times more GAIN students in 1988-89 than in 1986-87; (3) approximately 58% of the GAIN students whose characteristics were reported were non-white, 84% were over 24 years of age, and 68% were female; (4) regular GAIN average daily attendance revenue almost tripled from 1987-88 to 1988-89; (5) almost 90% of the responding colleges had GAIN students in vocational education, 80% in ESL classes, 62% in adult basic education and general educational development instruction, and 56% in college-based counseling; and (6) many colleges and county welfare departments still needed to establish comprehensive identification and tracking procedures for GAIN participants, particularly for vocational and self-initiated students. Appendixes include survey data. (JMC)
