NorthEast Employment Collaborative

About Us



The NorthEast Employment Collaborative (NEEC) is a vibrant partnership between service providers, government agencies, workforce development entities, and employers working towards one common goal – to increase employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

NEEC works with employers across Essex County and Northern Middlesex County to connect them with a largely untapped market of qualified job candidates. Our pool of candidates includes individuals who experience either a mental illness, a developmental disability, or in some cases, a physical disability. Job candidates have a range of interests, skills, and level of education, but all share one common trait – the commitment and desire to enter the workforce and contribute positively to a local employer.

NEEC is an initiative of Riverside Community Care funded by the Department of Developmental Services (DDS).
