Marilyn Edelhoch, director of research and evaluation at the
Carolina Department of Social Services, will speak about welfare reform
on Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. in the Wall Auditorium at Coastal
Carolina University. The event is free and open to the public.
Edelhoch's talk, titled "South Carolina Welfare Leavers: Studies
on the Highest, the Lowest, and No Wage Earners," will focus on why
some individuals remain on welfare and others leave the system.
