Workforce Development Program Solutions

EDSI has provided workforce development program services for over 35 years. Within this business segment, we assist individuals with the transition from unemployment to employment and from under-employment to self-sufficiency. EDSI works hard to promote unsubsidized employment, self-sufficiency, and smooth program operations for our government clients.

EDSI provides comprehensive job readiness, case management, skills analysis, job placement and retention services to a variety of populations: Employers, TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), Adult and Dislocated Workers, Non-Custodial Parents, Ex-Offenders, Youth, Refugees, and other economically-disadvantaged, unemployed or underemployed populations.

Primary funding sources for our programs include: Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and federal grant funding. We work collaboratively with funders and to understand and assess current needs and design and implement strategies that will provide the greatest impact on the overall performance of the program and region.
