Sarasota-based CareerEdge and the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg have formed a strategic partnership to address the training and development needs for differently abled Pinellas County residents. CareerEdge has hired Jennifer Evans of Meraki Strategic Group to lead this initiative. Through community and employer collaboration, gaps of service will be identified and then addressed. This partnership is intended to bring CareerEdge’s workforce development expertise to uncover, address and resolve some of the complex barriers to employment that exist for differently abled Pinellas County residents. This will result in better service, customized training, increased job placement and financial stability for the target population, decreasing unemployment in Pinellas County. This work is allowing CareerEdge to further extend its reach of service to help lead more individuals out of poverty and onto successful pathways for sustainability. CareerEdge is a partnership of business, government and philanthropic organizations that leverages public and private dollars to provide opportunities for better jobs and wages in Manatee and Sarasota counties.
