Berkshire Bridges team travels from Pittsfield to Boston for Working Cities celebration

23 agency partners, residents, and legislative leaders from Pittsfield convened at the Federal Reserve in Boston on July 18 to celebrate the Working Cities Challenge! We are proud to be part of an initiative that will close the gap between social inclusion and economic self-sufficiency–a Berkshire Bridges community.

Special thanks to Senator Ben Downing, Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier, and Secretary Jay Ash for sharing this day with us! Join us as we make a Pittsfield where all people experience a safe, just, and thriving community.

Our Working Cities Wednesday meetings begin on July 27 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Family Resource Center (details here). Please RSVP at (413) 442-3181 so we can plan for dinner.
