Career Centers Meet Network: Congratulations to all!


Yesterday afternoon at Holyoke Community College, 75 people attended a Network sponsored Career Services Training to learn about employment related resources available for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Special thanks to every Career Center in our region, as well as Way Finders’ Secure Jobs Program, for providing such an excellent training, especially to: Bud Delphin, CareerPoint, Lisa Lapierre, Franklin Hampshire Career Center, Maegan Pedemonti, Way Finders Secure Jobs Program, Konrad Rogowski, FutureWorks, and Pamela Wojtkowski, BerkshireWorks, all of whom participated in an excellent presentation.  Stay tuned for the materials in an upcoming blog post.

And thanks to our Network partners who really brought home what it is to be a Network: from housing to health care to child care to domestic violence services to sheriffs’ offices to the Veterans Administration to multiple state agencies, almost every sector of our community across our four counties was represented in that room, all joined in the mission to make permanent housing a reality for all in Western Massachusetts.

Finally, a big thanks to Holyoke Community College for receiving a last minute call for space as a result of unanticipated overflow in numbers  for our initially reserved space.  HCC provided us the beautiful Kittredge Center space in an instant.  We are so grateful for the partnership.

Great work, everyone!
