In early November, DHS started holding orientations for those who have been told they are an ABAWD (Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents). The meetings gave them a chance to learn about benefit and workforce opportunities.
The next two SNAP ABAWD orientations, which occur in all DHS regional family centers, are on November 28, 2018 and December 12, 2018.
The times are as follows:
Providence DHS 9 - 10 a.m.
Pawtucket DHS 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Middletown DHS 9 - 10 a.m.
Wakefield DHS 9 - 10 a.m.
Warwick DHS 1 - 2 p.m.
Woonsocket DHS 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
