- Direct connection to local employers
- Education assessment and support
- Support Services to complete program activity
Below are the Employment and Training Programs we currently operate.
In partnership with Wood County Human Services Department, CW Solutions has been providing FoodShare Employment & Training (FSET) services for the nine-county NorthCentral Region (Region 6) since 2015. FSET is a free program for FoodShare (aka SNAP) recipients who are age 16 or older. FSET provides assessment, job skills training, soft-skills, job readiness preparation and education opportunities to help program participants gain and retain employment. Wood County and CW Solutions have 10 office locations plus several outreach sites to provide services throughout the region. Please visit our FSET website www.myFSET.net for more information about our program and services.

Wood County Child Support, in partnership with CW Solutions, is one of five counties in Wisconsin to operate a five-year demonstration project to provide a new and innovate approach to services for Non-Custodial parents with a support order. ELEVATE provides case management services, employment & training, parenting, mediation and related services. The goal of the program is to help NCPs become financially stable, increase support payments and have a stronger relationship with their children. This new approach fosters a partnership between Child Support, Non-Custodial Parents, and Custodial Parents.
Service Area: Wood County
Non-Custodial Parents (NCPs) who have a support order but are not able to make their monthly support payment(s) can receive assistance through the Children First program. The goal of Children First is to help connect NCPs to the labor market so they have the financial resources to meet their support obligations.
Service Area: Oneida and Portage counties
