ECOS was initiated in May 1996 to create and maintain a collaborative workforce development system that can work together "without walls". It is this system approach that utilizes the expertise of ECOS partner agencies to:

  1. Increase the skill and ability levels of the East Multnomah County workforce which enhances business operations for employers
  2. Reduce the number of East County families living in poverty through the development of individual skills and removal of barriers that prevent greater employment opportunities.
  3. Jointly identify solutions to gaps in the workforce and community development systems and cultivate a greater understanding of complex community problems that require a holistic approach.
ECOS has paid special attention to enhancing services to underserved populations in its county, including individuals with criminal records, the disabled and individuals with language barriers. ECOS coordinates the efforts of its partner agencies through collaborative problem solving, resource sharing and multi-level communication to ensure the needs of the county residents are met.
