For Individuals: Transform Your Life
The Cumberlands Workforce Development Board and South Central Workforce Development Board's Community Support & Resources and Re-Entry & Transformational Employment divisions have a dedicated staff ready and equipped with valuable resources to assist individuals re-entering the workforce in our region. We understand that additional obstacles (ex: housing, training, access to food/basic needs, etc) often have to be met simultaneously with successful employment. Therefore, our team has developed a comprehensive program, which utilizes one-on-one assessment measures, to understand our clients' needs and ultimately remove any barriers that would interfere with or inhibit a successful reintegration into the workforce following a cycle of unemployment, incarceration, etc.
23-County Community Resource Guide
We have assembled a comprehensive resource guide for the South Central and Cumberlands regions. Here you will find addresses and phone contacts for a wide variety of resources ranging from government offices and support services to career assistance, food banks, financial services, housing support, substance abuse help, health services, legal assistance, and much more.
If your organization would like to be added to this list please contact Aaron Poynter.
