|Economic Development Center (EDC)
is designed to strengthen an individual's ability to secure and keep employment or to start and maintain a small business. Participants with low-moderate income who lack workplace and business skills can access services that include a personal vocational assessment, basic economic literacy, budget planning, resume development, job placement and follow up, small business training and start-up. Participants can start creating assets through an Individual Development Account (IDA) program, which matches savings they establish for business equity, home ownership or education.
With respect for Hawaii's multicultural population, the mission of the Economic Development Center is to assist low to moderate-income individuals and families to reach their economic goals. The Economic Development Center provides employment preparation, job placement, microenterprise, savings, and consumer education programs throughout the various communities of Oahu.
Vision: Individuals and families have the skills to realize their economic dreams and full potential.
