BOSTON – Today, Governor Charlie Baker, Secretary of Public Safety and Security Daniel Bennett, Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta and executives from Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries  visited Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries’ quarterly “Clothing Collaborative,” which makes donated business clothing available to male and female job seekers who participate in Boston Career Link (BCL).

For nearly 20 years, BCL has served as a Massachusetts One Stop Career Center, offering job training and placement programs to assist job-seekers in their efforts to obtain and retain meaningful employment. Last year, leveraging support from the Executive Office for Administration and Finance, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development and the Department of Transportation, the Massachusetts Department of Correction entered into an agreement with BCL to provide services to pre-release individuals, including registration, orientation and employment services. Currently, 98 individuals have attended orientations, registration and completed a career action plan and 88 individuals have been employed.
