The author presents a theoretical model program with which Jewish agencies might assist "displaced homemakers." These are mature women entering the workforce unexpectedly due to divorce or widowhood. Such women often encounter barriers such as discrimination, difficulties regarding child-care, and other problems stemming from extensive time spent out of the workforce. The author's model program would provide counseling, training, job placement, advocacy, follow-up, and other support services.
