April 11, 2024: Ribbon cutting ceremony in front of the new Woodland Hills WorkSource Center operated by EWDD partner Equus Workforce Solutions
On April 11, 2024, the Economic Workforce Development Department’s partner Equus Workforce Solutions opened its doors to the South Valley WorkSource Center (WSC). Among the attendees present for the celebration were Councilmember Bob Blumenfield (Council District 3) and EWDD leadership staff.

Councilmember Blumenfield made opening remarks about what this location means for individuals in this region. “This is a long time coming, and what a remarkable space it is,” the Councilmember told the crowd. “Having a physical location opens up a launching pad for so many jobs for the entire region.”

This location provides all of the same resources available at other WSCs, with the addition of parents being able to participate in the childcare initiative to pay for childcare through WIOA funds. EWDD General Manager Carolyn Hull’s remarks touched on the importance of having these types of additional services that help parents find not just a job but a living wage, which is a critical component in the City’s ecosystem of building tomorrow's future.
