THE HUB: MAY 2019
The OCO workforce development SCORE (Support Collaboration Opportunities
Resources Education/Employment) program is designed to increase access to services
for individuals experiencing unemployment, underemployment and those seeking workforce development services through both a fixed community HUB of providers
that is located in Oswego at Midtown Plaza, as well as a mobile community HUB that
will be in the outlying areas of the county. Our ultimate goal is to remove the barriers
that many people face when trying to obtain or maintain employment with the end
result being self-sustainability.

It is OCO's practice to respond to news media inquiries as quickly as possible, depending upon availability of spokespersons or subject experts and the complexity of the topic being covered.
All requests for comments, interview, photos/video, or statements must be handled through OCO Administration, 315-598-4717.

Arrangements for filming/photographing and/or interviewing OCO department and program staff, volunteers and clients must be made in advance by contacting the Senior Director of Operations Betsy Copps at 315-598-4717 ext. 1092.
Due to confidentiality requirements, federal and state regulations, and Agency policy, all OCO clients, employees and volunteers must have a signed release on file with the Agency before they can be interviewed, filmed or photographed.
News media are free to visit program sites that are public places or service portals; however, many program sites are also clients' homes or shelters and therefore not accessible without permission. Please check with the Senior Director of Operations first.
