As part of its Guaranteed Work Program (GWP), PSG proudly supports several Boston non-profit organizations, including Rosie’s Place. James Bianconi is one of the PSG temporary employees who is occasionally sent to work at the Rosie’s Place offices, where work involves coordinating fundraising mailings and performing data entry.
“Thank you to the Professional Staffing Group for including Rosie’s Place as a sponsored non-profit in your Guaranteed Work Program. All of the temporary employees who have been sent to work at Rosie’s Place have been professional, helpful and hardworking. We are so grateful for your support!” said Katie Amoro, Development Officer at Rosie’s Place.
Rosie’s Place was founded in 1974 as the first women’s shelter in the United States. Its mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives. Today, Rosie’s Place not only provides meals and shelter but also creates answers for 12,000 women a year through wide ranging support, housing and education services.

PSG is proud to support several Boston non-profit organizations through its Guaranteed Work Program (GWP). Through the GWP, PSG sends temporary employees to work in the office of an area non-profit when no client has requested the worker for that day. That’s how Richard Lestage got his assignment to work for Boston Partners in Education recently.
Boston Partners in Education pairs volunteers with Boston Public School students to help them gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life. During the 2012-2013 academic year, BPE matched over 5,000 students in 72 schools throughout the city with 732 volunteers. BPE recruited, trained, placed, and supported volunteer academic mentors to work with students one-on-one, in small groups, and with entire classrooms. Academic mentors gave a combined 27,773 hours of their time to work with these K-12 students, resulting in an in-kind contribution of nearly $1.3 million to the Boston Public Schools.
“Boston Partners in Education is so grateful for the pro-bono support we receive from Professional Staffing Group through their non-profit partner program. We jump at the amazing opportunity to have a skilled and friendly PSG worker assist us with crucial work, especially when faced with tight deadlines. Because of PSG, we are able to complete a variety of tasks on time and on budget. We truly appreciate the support!” said Pamela Civins, Executive Director of Boston Partners in Education.
Keri Walsh, communications manager at Boston Partners in Education, adds, “Richard played a vital role in helping us complete a 3,000 piece direct mail project recently. It was so nice working alongside Richard, and I enjoyed learning about his background and career goals.”
