Who We Serve

Career Gear serves men who are economically disadvantaged and under-served from throughout the 5 boroughs of New York City.  Career Gear offers vital services to men of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, including recipients of public assistance, the disabled, recovering addicts, veterans, former foster care children, recent immigrants, the formerly incarcerated, or those who face other disadvantages that make job acquisition and retention a challenge.

With all the training I got while in prison, they never prepared me to get out and get hit in the face with a recession.
