This brief is one in a series of three that describe early lessons from in-depth interviews with Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) study participants. PACE is a ten-year random assignment evaluation of nine promising career pathways interventions aimed at increasing employment and self-sufficiency among low-income, low-skilled adults and youth. This brief highlights the various types of supports received by respondents, including program supports, public assistance, and material and emotional help provided by family and friends. The interviews are part of a qualitative sub-study designed to improve understanding of participants’ experiences.
