Kollage Square became a subsidiary of Career Services Group Ltd., a division of Career Services, in December of 2019. Career Services started as a grassroots initiative in 1972. It was formed by a group of families with disabled members that faced barriers to employment. They have been in business for over 45 years, but were officially incorporated in 1976. Career Services does not have an owner, they are a non-profit organization overseen by a board of directors made up of community-minded working and retired professionals that guide their mission to expand inclusive employment.
Career Services is fully involved with their community by providing and supporting the best possible opportunities for growth and development for everyone. They offer the unique combination of an employment service, which includes placement and skills development for individuals who face barriers to employment, and revenue-generating industrial businesses. All proceeds attained through their business endeavors are re-invested into their organization to expand and support our mission and those they serve.
Every Kollage Square needle purchased enables their parent organization Career Services to expand employment opportunities for individuals with barriers by working with employers and community partners. By providing specialized supports, they help people pursue their work goals. They are truly knitting together and connecting the needle arts/hobby craft world with an inclusive social mission.
Career Services embraces the connection between knitting and their employment services; metaphorically speaking Knitting and job development share four recurring themes; starting something new, repeating a pattern (skills development), changing things (coping with job expectations/changes), and creating an ending (finding employment).
Over the years Career Services has been able to serve thousands of individuals who face barriers to employment, to provide them with training, real work experiences, community placement opportunities, and one on one coaching. They are “knitting lives together” by assisting barriered individuals to practice and master the stitches they use daily to create employment.
