Is welfare reform helping mothers achieve economic independence?

Claudia Coulton

Dr. Claudia Coulton, Lillian F. Harris Professor and Co-Director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, has been examining outcomes following welfare reform since soon after the reform legislation was signed into law.

Dr. Coulton has examined all aspects of how former welfare recipients have fared in the wake of reform, from employment to housing and food hardships. This article addresses Dr. Coulton's research into whether welfare reform has helped mothers achieve economic independence.

You can also read the entire Value of Research publication from which it is drawn, and you can visit Digital Case to access articles and briefs Dr. Coulton has written on those who have left welfare following reform.
