History

Community Workforce Solutions, Inc., formerly Raleigh Vocational Center, Inc. (RVC) opened in December 1964 in the former Coca Cola Bottling plant located on Glenwood Avenue under the name of Wake County Sheltered Workshop. In May 1972 the agency moved into the main facility at 3011 Falstaff Road, occupying the adjacent ADVP building in September 1980. In 1982 the name was changed to Raleigh Vocational Center, Inc. to reflect a significant change in the types of services provided. The NC Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the NC Division of MH/DD/SA Services were significant partners as Raleigh Vocational Center began to focus on Supported Employment and other types of Job Placement and Coaching services. In 1989 the main facility and the ADVP building were joined under one roof. The 1990's offered a time of continual change and focused on community based services, with many more individuals receiving services in the community rather than at the facility. That trend continues to be a focus of the Agency today. In July 2003 RVC assumed responsibility for INCO in Henderson, NC. INCO had been in operation since 1984, a program of the VGFW Area Authority, providing an array of services including ADVP and Supported Employment. The joining of Raleigh Vocational Center and INCO/RVC, now Community Workforce Solutions, Inc., expanded both community and agency based services to Vance, Granville, Franklin, and Warren Counties. The name was changed to Community Workforce Solutions, Inc. in 2007. Community Workforce Solutions, Inc. now reflects services, supports, and programs at all locations and within the community.
