EWDD Messaging During the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak

Keeping You Safe is Our Priority

04/20/2020

In light of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Safer at Home Order, EWDD’s BusinessSource, WorkSource and YouthSource Centers are providing resources remotely, via phone, email and social media. EWDD is postponing all major events, including job fairs, until the COVID-19 health crisis subsides.

During these uncertain times, EWDD remains committed to continuing to provide services. EWDD’s BusinessSource Centers will continue to help small business owners with loans, such as the City’s LA CARES Corps and Small Business Emergency Microloan Program. WorkSource Centers will help job seekers with Unemployment Insurance (UI) applications and limited job placement assistance. EWDD's Rapid Response Team is hosting Virtual Resource Orientations for Angelenos whose jobs have been compromised or eliminated by the current outbreak. Additional resources for Angelenos whose jobs are impacted by COVID-19 can also find additional information at lajobsportal.org. In addition, YouthSource Centers will continue to provide information, referrals and access to support services to the City’s Youth.

We would like to assure EWDD’s clients and participants that we are doing everything possible to ensure your health and safety. We will continue to provide updates as we receive them.

For additional COVID-19 information and updates, please visit our COVID-19 Resources web page or one of the following online resources:

We will continue to provide updates as we receive new information.

Sincerely,
Carolyn M. Hull
EWDD General Manager
