Greater Boston Employment Collaborative


State Policies & Initiatives: 

“The Greater Boston Employment Collaborative (GBEC) is a vibrant partnership between service providers, government agencies, workforce development entities, and employers working towards one common goal - to increase employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

GBEC works with employers across the Greater Boston Area to connect them with a largely untapped market of qualified job candidates. Our pool of candidates includes individuals from 30 towns from Belmont to Winthrop, who experience either a mental illness, a developmental disability, or in some cases, a physical disability. Job candidates have a range of interests, skills, and level of education, but all share one common trait – the commitment and desire to enter the workforce and contribute positively to a local employer.

GBEC is an initiative of Riverside Community Care funded by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and Mass Commission for the Blind.”
