Rapid Response Information
What is Rapid Response?
When layoffs are unavoidable, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services' Rapid Response Unit provides assistance to both the affected workers and their communities. The Rapid Response Unit can assess what services the workers need and then provide those services, either on-site or nearby.
Your Rapid Response Team will be providing assistance with: skill assessments, basic skills training, individual career counseling, short and long-term occupational skills training, job seeking and placement assistance, financial assistance, food assistance and health care.
Please remember Rapid Response is about re-employment. We're here to serve you and to help find solutions to the temporary challenges that you may face until you become re-employed.
If you would like assistance with services that are not listed, please do not hesitate to call and let us know.
