The mission of the Department of Transitional Assistance is to assist low-income individuals and families to meet their basic needs, increase their incomes, and improve their quality of life.

We believe we can best succeed in our mission by:

  • Working collaboratively as a team, cooperating with each other and sharing responsibility and ideas
  • Partnering with state agencies, with community organizations, and most importantly, with our clients
  • Maintaining a customer-oriented approach to our work and treating everyone with dignity and respect, addressing each individual's need with sensitivity and understanding
  • Building an organizational culture that promotes creativity and accountability.
