March 2018 - Workforce Enterprise

Dear QARI Supporters,

We want to express our sympathies to people in Quincy and other towns that were affected by the storm.  QARI and our volunteers are committed to providing support during this recovery period.  Please do not hesitate to contact QARI for assistance.  

Today is a milestone for QARI as we announce the launch of Workforce Enterprise.  We are incredibly grateful to our community leaders, board members, and CEOs from various sectors for supporting us in this journey.  I am excited and humbled to partner with many visionary innovators in the Workforce Enterprise to create more socially responsible and sustainable avenues to support our community services and programs.  This initiative aligns with QARI's mission and culture in innovation, consistency, and growth. 

You can learn more about the Workforce Enterprise and how we partnered with the MBTA/MassDOT during the Wollaston T Station closing. 

Thank you all for your support of QARI.


Philip Chong
Chief Executive Officer
