Supportive Services provide the publicly-funded workforce system participants with critical assistance beyond career and training services necessary to achieve success. Supportive services allow participants to successfully engage with career and training activities such as Registered Apprenticeships or classroom training that are vital to entering or re-entering the workforce.
During the month of June, we will be highlighting the broad scope of supportive services, including rental assistance, supports for utilities and broadband, child care, the child tax credit, earned income tax credit, nutrition and food security, health care resources, and legal aid among others. Many of these resources are outlined in The Practitioners Guide to Supportive Services, which was shared last fall on WorkforceGPS.
If you know of an example of an exemplary program or initiative that provides supportive services to participants, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
