Holistic Support Services Advance Economic Mobility and Educational Attainment
Holistic support services are critical to increasing skills training access, completion, and connection to quality jobs.  Intentional investments in supportive services help to address racial wealth gaps and the unprecedented rates of basic needs insecurity facing today’s students—adult learners who are balancing work, school, and family responsibilities.  Community college, training provider, and community partner staff can help learners navigate education, public benefit, and resource options to ensure that resources go to those who need them the most.  As states look to build inclusive economies, holistic support service policies and investments must be prioritized to advance educational attainment and economic mobility.
