Currently, the Mack Center is partnering with BASSC to study the implementation of Family Stabilization services. Issues being examined include service delivery models, staff development, and integration with existing services.

The Mack Center and BASSC also recently collaborated on a four county study of subsidized employment programs implemented in BASSC agencies under the TANF-EF program. BASSC members reported that client, staff and employer responses to the programs were very positive, providing support for decisions to continue subsidized employment programs despite the expiration of federal funding for the TANF-EF program in September, 2010. The survey identified effective employer engagement strategies, and highlighted employer perspectives on employee soft skills.

Earlier projects examining welfare to work services and populations have studied the experiences of clients and staff in county CalWORKs programs and documented innovative programs and practices emerging out of welfare reform.
