Supportive Services and the Workforce Development Sector of Detroit
Marcella S. Fox AmeriCorps VISTA, Michigan Nonprofit Association
The workforce development sector of Detroit has the responsibility of preparing Detroit’s residents for the current and emerging job markets. Supportive services, however, are still being perceived as a miscellaneous expense that does not have a significant impact on the outcomes of workforce development programs. If these services continue to be regarded in this manner, workforce development organizations will fail to meet their objectives. The workforce development sector, using empirical evidence from various studies, should advocate for its clients and programs. Funders need to be persuaded to include supportive services in their funding streams. The need for supportive services is immense. In order to be efficient and effective, organizations need to collaborate and employ collective impact strategies. Awarding sufficient funding for supportive services will yield greater outcomes and improve program design.

Stephanie Awalt, Jaylen Harris, Meghan Thorndike, Mary Bryson, Danielle DePew, Bashar Dimitry, Marcella Fox AmeriCorps VISTA, Michigan Nonprofit Association
The VISTA Needs Assessment Report examines current Detroit workforce development efforts and organizational capacity in order to support organizations that aim to reduce the unemployment rate. The VISTA team created an asset map to develop, identify, and categorize information about these workforce development programs. From that map a Needs Assessment was done to identify opportunities to support service delivery within a sample of these organizations. After analyzing the findings of the Needs Assessment the VISTA team developed strategies to support service delivery and recommended ways to address the needs of the Detroit workforce development sector.
Returning Citizens and Workforce Development Review With Special Focus on Detroit
Stephanie Awalt, Jaylen Harris, Meghan Thorndike AmeriCorps VISTA, Michigan Nonprofit Association
This review synthesizes research regarding the resources for persons returning to the workforce from prison. The focus of the review is workforce development opportunities for returning citizens in the city of Detroit, both during incarceration and after release. It also includes information regarding the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Ban the Box campaign. The campaign advocates for changing unfair hiring practices and removing questions about prior convictions from job applications. It resulted in the City Council enacting a Ban the Box ordinance in Detroit in 2010. In addition this research team explored how the stigma that accompanies returning citizen status can create additional barriers to finding and maintaining employment. Finally the review supports how important ancillary services are for returning citizens in order for them to sustain employment, one of the main goals of workforce development efforts.
