Heldrich Center services during the COVID-19 economic and workforce crisis

April 2, 2020

The John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development has extensive experience from our work during and after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the Great Recession, and Superstorm Sandy. We have a deep understanding of the programs and strategies that can help people, businesses, and communities cope with and then recover from economic disasters. For the past several years, we have provided free web-based and coaching services to thousands of long-term unemployed older workers.

As of late March, the Heldrich Center is providing free services to unemployed workers and nonprofit organizations that serve them.
