Displaced homemakers are individuals who have worked in the home for a number of years and, due to divorce, separation, death or disability of a spouse or partner, now find themselves as the primary source of household income. In many cases, displaced homemakers may be underemployed and unable to support either themselves or their children. After having lost their primary source of financial support, displaced homemakers may need to return to the workforce.

Displaced homemaker programs help these individuals obtain or upgrade skills for today's labor market. The goal is to help them become economically self-sufficient by providing education, job readiness training, networking, outreach, referrals and emotional support. Local programs draw on a wide range of contacts within their communities to aid displaced homemakers find the assistance they need.
