Karma Day #1 for BVI Massachusetts
The Massachusetts BridgeView IT office recently volunteered their time with some of the residents at Lifebridge in Salem, MA. Lifebridge’s mission is to end the crisis of homelessness. They believe that the way to solve this crisis one person at a time, is to provide housing with supportive services, to encourage personal and financial development, and stability in physical and mental health. To help get residents off the street one of the first steps is helping them find employment.
The staff at BridgeView ran a workshop for the LifeBridge employment services group helping guide residents through the topics of job seeking, writing resumes, and interview preparation. It was a very successful event that hopefully will assist some of the residents in finding gainful employment and helping assist in the mission to end homeless one person at a time.
