Community Collaboration

Ways to Work helps build local collaborations to support the success and sustainability of the local Ways to Work program and to assist in securing funding support for the program.

Because Ways to Work impacts so many factors related to economic self-sufficiency, family and community strengthening, these collaborative planning groups have broad representation from the local community. They often include representations from:

  • Family service organizations
  • Health and human service organizations
  • Economic self-sufficiency programs
  • Banks and financial institutions
  • United Ways and other local philanthropic organizations
  • Local Chamber of Commerce Agencies and local employers
  • State and local government representation from:
    1. Workforce Investment/Development
    2. Health and Human Services
    3. Transportation

These collaborations often continue to meet after the local Ways to Work program launches to address other issues for which there is common interest. For more information, please call us at (866) 252-7171.
