Congratulations to the 20 women who recently completed the Foot in the Door workforce development program. Square One is proud to have been a partner in this 12-week pilot initiative, along with Dress For Success of Western Massachusetts, Baystate Health, MGM, Smith & Wesson, Columbia Gas, United Personnel, and Training & Workforce Options. With a 15,000 donation from Colombia Gas, the curriculum-based program took place every Saturday morning at Square One's Main Street site. The participants were provided with free child care while they attended classes. Each of the women also received an interview with the participating employers and several have received job offers since completing the program. Congratulations to all of these dedicated, hard-working ladies!
