ResCare's Arbor E&T Awarded Southeast Texas Contract.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- ResCare, Inc. (NASDAQ/NM:RSCR), the nation's leading provider of residential, training, educational and support services for people with special needs, announced today that its subsidiary, Arbor Education and Training (Arbor E&T), has been awarded a contract by the Southeast Texas Workforce Development Board to operate a region-wide Workforce Development program that will serve youth and adult residents in the tri-county area of Jefferson, Hardin and Orange Counties. The contract, which began September 1, 2005, will generate approximately $5.0 million in annual revenue. Arbor E&T will provide workforce development services to potential job seekers, including dislocated workers, economically disadvantaged adults and local employers. The program will serve approximately 15,000 people per year. ResCare's Arbor E&T is the second largest one-stop operator in the United States.

"One-stop" programs are convenient service sites that enable job seekers and employers to receive government assistance, employment or training-related services at a single location.

"Arbor E&T opened its offices in Texas during the Labor Day weekend to address an enormous influx of people evacuating New Orleans for the Beaumont/Pt. Arthur area," said Ronald G. Geary, ResCare chairman, president and chief executive officer. "During that time, Arbor staff and members of the funding agency provided services to approximately one-fourth of the 12,000 evacuees and were able to immediately place more than 1,000 people in jobs. It is a testament to the effectiveness of our Arbor team when they can hit the ground running and immediately address the considerable needs of the evacuees. Those same people became evacuees themselves when Hurricane Rita hit that area this weekend. When they return, the need for their services will be even greater. We are privileged to be able to provide these much needed services at such a critical time in the history of this region."

ResCare, founded in 1974, offers services to some 41,000 people in 34 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada. ResCare is a human service company that provides residential, therapeutic, job training and educational supports to people with developmental or other disabilities, to youth with special needs and to adults who are experiencing barriers to employment. The Company is based in Louisville, KY. More information about ResCare is available on the Company's web site at
