Rapid Response for Laid-Off Workers

Being laid off from your job is one of the most traumatic events you can experience in life. However, you do not need to go through this transition alone. The Rapid Response program provides services and resources that can be brought to you, with a goal of getting you back to work as soon as possible and minimize the disruptions on your life that a layoff will cause.
