UNITED for Workforce Development Pathways - How We Help

UNITED for Workforce Development Pathways

Your local United Way Cass-Clay is changing the way we address issues such as hunger, homelessness, poverty, and workforce development. We want to collaborate to tackle the source, not just the symptoms, to solve them for good.

No one organization can solve complex community problems. The only way we can create real, lasting change is by innovating the way people, organizations and systems work together.

GOAL 1: ESTABLISH & INCREASE collaboration and partnership among workforce development agencies, educational institutions, and community based organizations to leverage resources and align services to help New Americans and low income individuals enter the workforce and elevate their employment and career opportunities


GOAL 2: IDENTIFY & REMOVE the gaps and barriers that currently exist for New Americans and low income individuals to enter the workforce and attain and retain family sustaining employment


GOAL 3: POSITION under and unemployed workers on a path to long-term family sustaining employment and career success


GOAL 4: INCREASE
     • Access to educational services such as training classes, skill training, GED classes and ELL classes
     • Access to supportive services such as housing, transportation, and child care
     • The number of eligible workers to enter the workforce to meet and respond to the local workforce shortage
