DC Employment Services Launches Spanish Website

Mayor Muriel Bowser's office also announced a new $100,000 grant that will expand access to bilingual work readiness training services in high-demand and rapidly growing job sectors.

The Washington, D.C., Department of Employment Services recently launched a Spanish-language website named DOES en español. The site will allow Limited English Proficient and Non-English Proficient residents to access information about DOES programs and services, including filing for unemployment benefits, filing a wage theft claim, registering for the Mayor Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program; analyzing labor statistics for the District of Columbia, finding information about paid family leave, and learning about DOES programs, apprenticeships trainings, and employment opportunities.

"With this new website, we’re building a more inclusive DC Government, expanding access to our employment services, and ensuring more residents can participate in our city's prosperity," said Mayor Muriel Bowser. "With the $100,000 grant we can create new opportunities for district residents, and with the new website, we can make sure our residents and community organizations know about those opportunities."

The department is the first DC Government agency to launch a Spanish website. "DOES has placed an increased emphasis on providing individualized support that is tailored to the needs of our diverse customers," said DOES Director Dr. Unique Morris-Hughes. "Recognizing underserved communities are less confined by geographical boundaries than they are impacted by cultural influence, our Spanish-language site enhances our ability to serve residents in our Latino community efficiently."

The mayor's office announced the new $100,000 grant that will expand access to bilingual work readiness training services in high-demand and rapidly growing job sectors. DOES will use the grant funding to partner with community organizations that provide literacy programs and support services that are intended to reduce barriers to employment for parents of school-aged children.
