Fenway CDC helps vulnerable, low-income, and moderate-income residents overcome poverty barriers by accessing social services, job skills training, education advancement programs, job and career opportunities, and secure living wage jobs. We provide wrap-around services through in-house and our extensive network of economic stability services, education, and employer program partners. Since 2014, Fenway CDC had Career Fairs which was attending by over 50 hiring employers. We continue to collaborate with them for job placement and career development services.
