Braiding Services for the Best Outcomes

Resource type

In this session, presenters from the Missouri workforce development system will share how they communicate available resources to the customer, and how they use the customer information to decide which partners to convene to achieve the best outcome. They will discuss the benefits of braiding services, provide examples of successful partnerships, and share the importance of communication at all levels. Attendees will also hear how the panelists navigate multiple complex funding streams from WIOA, TANF, and outside grants as well as the resources the partners bring to the table, using technology to achieve these goals.
