Barbara Gribbins needed a job. A former Taylor County Detention Center employee, Gribbins had been out of work for several months.
"I was looking for work," Gribbins said. "I had been on unemployment and it was running out."
Then Gribbins heard about WorkNow Kentucky.
Fueled by stimulus funds, the program puts Kentuckians to work for the summer. Salaries and benefits are paid entirely through the program, which is overseen by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
