Recovery Employment Services Initiative Successful

Recovery Services

Mayor Gary Christenson is pleased to announce that the City of Malden’s first Recovery Employment Services initiative proved to be a tremendous success! This program is designed to provide job life skills and soft skills pre-employment training (such as mock interviews, resume assistance, interview etiquette, etc.) with the main focus being to re-introduce individuals back into the workforce. The program consisted of an 8-week Training Certificate course followed by job placement and additional training programs as needed.

The Recovery Employment Services Program (RESP) is a pilot created through the collaboration of Kashawna Harling, Director of Career Services; Tamerlie Roc, Communication Outreach, Pastor Gerry Whetstone, Executive Director of the Malden Warming Center; Paul Bell, Recovery Coach for the City of Malden; Nicole O’Brien, founder of Ruth’s way; Nicole Balkisoon, Life Coach and local business owner Paul Murphy of Paul T. Murphy Insurance Agency.

The participants were congratulated for completing the program at a recent ceremony. “Thank you to everyone that made this initiative possible,” said Mayor Christenson. “The program provides much needed resources and support to individuals facing barriers in re-entering the workforce. It was a true collaboration, and I am especially grateful to Paul Murphy for his help in including the business community.”
