Baker Technical Institute has added the Department of Human Services to its list of partners in the community.

The pilot program between the career and technical training program known as BTI and DHS, the agency that offers public assistance to needy families, is the first partnership of its kind in Oregon, said Tammy Pierce, a BTI spokeswoman.

The Baker County Self-Sufficiency arm of DHS currently serves 123 households through its Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) grant program, said Rhonda Culley, DHS Self-Sufficiency program manager in Baker City.

“We’ve done a good job of getting people off (the TANF rolls) and helping them get jobs and keep jobs,” Culley said. “We work really hard with the clientele we have and have been successful.”

Another 1,166 Baker County households are enrolled in the former food stamp program now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
