Dear Friends & Community Partners, The Work Place DC will be using this site to post latest updates on our progress toward creating a productive shared workspace.

About Us:
The Work Place DC (TWPDC) is envisioned to locate a network of workforce development service
providers in one space who are committed to:

  • Providing low-income, unemployed, and underemployed DC residents with programs and services that help them acquire the necessary education and skills that will lead to economic self sufficiency.
  • Providing employers with high quality employees who are work ready and who help employers meet DC’s First Source legislation requirements.
  • Providing wrap-around services that support both the employee and employer to help ensure job retention and job success.

The underlying belief is a network of organizations, employers, and community stakeholders will have a much greater impact together in helping unemployed and underemployed DC residents transition to economic self sufficiency than they would individually. TWPDC will build on work begun in Ward 5 by Harry Thomas and a group of nonprofit organizations and concerned citizens to establish a center that would benefit intermittent workers as well as a broader group.
