The Neighborhood Employment Center (NEC) offers job search / retention assistance to unemployed and underemployed adult residents throughout the service area. Job placement and auxiliary services are now provided directly by Brashear to all clients. The NEC has exceeded all compliance goals for the past four years of Brashear’s management of the program. The NEC was chosen as a site for applicants to UPMC Health System to submit required electronic employment applications. NEC staff will provide assistance in this service and all UPMC applicants will also be introduced to other NEC services.
Brashear Association also is an information hub for the community at-large. Our staff fields a variety of requests for information and referrals via telephone, walk-in, e-mail and mail inquiries concerning all Brashear services, as well as those available through other agencies and programs.
