Our presenters will be Child Support and UDC Workforce Development and Adult Life Long Learning Program. Please note that Child Support is managing approximately 3,000 open cases. They have been successful in identifying and engaging a significant number of “non-custodial” parents in employment and family services initiatives. In the UDC Workforce Development program, students are primarily from East of River and a significant percentage are males of color. Transportation, child care, and unstable living conditions continue to pose barriers to program completion. These will be the primary topic areas. Agenda is forthcoming.
