Who is a Nevada Displaced Homemaker?
In today’s society it is still common for one member of the family
to maintain the home while someone else in the family is the primary
wage-earner. The family financial support may suddenly be lost
through divorce, death, job loss or other circumstances. The member
of the family who maintained the home becomes a “displaced
homemaker”. In that event, an obvious but not so easy choice is for
him or her to get the assistance necessary to find work that will
make that person self-sufficient. The Nevada Department of
Employment, Training and Rehabilitation’s Displaced Homemaker
program can help.
Nevada, like many other states, created a law that states,
displaced homemakers should be provided services that would enable
them to gain the knowledge, experience, and self-esteem to become
employed and self-sufficient. Self-sufficiency means being
capable of providing for one’s own needs.
The Displaced Homemaker Program offers a variety of services,
including access to education, skills training, resume-writing,
interviewing skills, job search assistance.
Each client is
interviewed to determine his or her needs. A program is then
designed to outline the necessary steps to establish a career.
There is no charge for
services to displaced homemakers. The Displaced Homemaker Program in
Nevada is funded by law from divorce fees collected in the state
