Frontline Workforce Association

The Frontline Workforce Association (FWA) was formed in the Fall of 2010 as a way to help frontline providers collaborate, support one another, and make referrals. Specifically, FWA provides free access to networking, continuing education, and professional development for all frontline staff. The informational meetings are designed to be interactive and often include a chance to share best practices and troubleshoot common problems.

FWA meets bi-monthly, or six times a year, focusing on various topics of interest. All meetings are free of charge. The group is open to all frontline job developers, regardless of their past involvement with Frontline Focus.
