Center for Employment & Economic Well-Being

CENTER FOR EMPLOYMENT & ECONOMIC WELL-BEING

Gainful Employment and Independence is one of four key outcome areas APHSA seeks to impact through a transformed human service system. Through aligned and person-centered programs, flexible funding, meaningful accountability, and strategic partnerships, we can provide the opportunities and supports that will help low-income individuals get a job, keep a job, and start down a sustainable career path.

 

For low-income people, having a job and staying in the workforce are critical to achieving economic mobility and greater wellbeing.  However, many low-income people do not have equal access to opportunity, and face barriers to full participation in our nation’s economy.  Human service agencies and their partners play a critical role in supporting access to opportunity, employment, self-sufficiency, and greater individual capacity for low-income individuals and families.

 

The APHSA Center for Employment & Economic Well-Being (CEEWB) was established to be a central source of information, resources, discussion and development relating to workforce engagement and gainful employment. The Center facilitates collaboration across stakeholders, and identifies and promotes practice models, funding structures, and policies that can best support and enable gainful employment and self-sufficiency for individuals and families.
