Who we are
Equus Workforce Services is a leading provider of workforce development services nationwide. We serve jobseekers, current workers, and employers in urban, suburban, and rural locations throughout the country. Our company was founded in 1963 as the operations arm of a behavioral research organization. In 1968, Rescare was awarded a demonstration grant by the federal Department of Health, Education and Welfare to formulate an innovative training program for welfare mothers in Philadelphia. This program is still in operation today.
Equus gradually expanded from Philadelphia into other counties and states. During the 1990s, Equus continued to experience steady growth. We now operate a sophisticated range of workforce development programs serving jobseeksers and employers in over 50 locations nationwide.
The company employs 41,000 people and serves more than 32,000 persons in 32 states and Washington DC. Founded in 1974. Equus received it’s first government contract from the U.S. Department of Labor, to operate a Job Corps center in Kentucky. Today Equus is the second largest operator of Job Corps centers in the country.
