You are social worker in a small nonprofit welfare-to-work training program. The program has met its goal of moving people from welfare into work but the executive director and staff are troubled by the poor standard of living achieved by graduates from the program and are concerned about how this impacts the future of children in the family. The agency employs 30 staff comprising an executive director, an assistant director, a finance and human resources manager, administrative assistant, 10 job coaches, 5 job finders, 10 case managers, and a part-time janitor/housekeeper. The program is located in a mid-sized city on the east coast. Referrals are sent through the local Department of Social Service. At any given time the agency is serving 250–490 clients.

The organization has developed good relationships with numerous community agencies that address barriers to employment such as substance abuse or anger management. The agency has been in existence since 2005 and is resourced through a combination of government funds, city/local funds, and private and in-kind donations and grants. Recently the city has been threatening to cut funding because they do not believe that outcomes are being achieved by the program. They have been discussing the possibility of contracting with a for-profit organization. The local community board is opposed to this idea as they prefer to support local organizations and not large corporations that do not have a stake in the community. Financial support from United Way, a community agency, is also in jeopardy because of a lack of evidence the organization is achieving its outcomes.
