Save the Ridgecrest EDD

This petition had 728 supporters

The EDD has decided to remove their staff from Ridgecrest - this means that the community will no longer have a Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) Specialist. The DVOP assists veterans with obtaining employment and connects them to vital veterans resources. A Ridgecrest DVOP founded the Ridgecrest Veteran Advisory Council  and the current DVOP has assisted veterans with obtaining transportation to medical appointments and temporary housing for homeless veterans.

Ridgecrest will also lose their EDD Employment Program Representative (EPR) who has assisted countless individuals with their unemployment and disability claims. Without the assistance of the EPR - unemployment and disability claimants' would be forced to use a 1-800 telephone number that has limited hours and impossible wait times in order to resolve claim issues.
