Wendy Therrian's Message

Wendy Therrian

Many individuals coming to us for assistance have no where else to turn for needed support for themselves and their children. Many face immediate and formidable barriers that require addressing before they are able to secure employment and find a path by which to most successfully address their life challenges. And many more while finding employment and other requisite support and assistance continue to be challenged in their efforts towards a life of economic independence and security. Issues such as affordable housing and child care, transportation, livable wages, and the challenge of continuing education and training while working and raising a family can all, at one time or another, become impediments to envisioning a brighter future and achieving a better quality of life.

The mission of the Employment & Human Services Department is to partner with the community to deliver quality services to ensure access to resources that support, protect, and empower individuals and families. Based on this mission, our dedicated staff working in partnership with our committed community partners will continue to assist our customers as they strive to become self-sufficient.

We hope that in reading through our website you have gained the information you are seeking as well as an understanding of the Workforce Bureau’s services, programs, and outcomes.
