BOSS Awarded by County for Workforce Development

At its regular meeting on Tuesday September 29th 2015, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors formally recognized the workforce development efforts of BOSS as part of their “Let’s Work Campaign” – specifically, working with people to remove barriers to employment and help all in need secure gainful employment.

Executive Director Donald Frazier accepted the award from Keith Carson, Alameda County Supervisor. Also in attendance were BOSS Board Member William C. White, BOSS staff, and supporters.

“It is an honor to be recognized for this important work,” said Donald. “But it is an even greater honor to work with the people who receive our services. Their success and determination inspires us every day.”
