Employment, Training, & Housing Opportunities for Veterans
Seedco’s West Baltimore Career Pathways Collaborative engages local employers, service providers, and correctional agencies in establishing career pathways for individuals coming out of the criminal justice system. By helping individuals find a job and establish a path for advancement, Seedco improves their chances of successfully integrating into their communities and staying out of prison.
Since 2015, our program implements training and placement around locally in-demand sectors, including manufacturing and construction, and integrates:
A key partner in outreach and service delivery is Bon Secours Community Works.
