Mary's Center and Briya PCS Celebrate Three Awards from 2021 Top Workplaces
By: Mary's Center
This is the fourth year that the partnership has received the Top Workplaces recognition, which spotlights private, public, nonprofit, and government agencies that received the highest employee ratings from a survey contracted by the newspaper.
"I am deeply honored by these three recognitions,"
Mary's Center started 33 years ago as a small clinic in a basement with 10 employees serving 200 women fleeing war and poverty. In 1999, Mary's Center and Briya formed a partnership based in the belief and research that families would have better outcomes if their health, social services, and educational needs were addressed together.
"This recognition affirms our staff's passion and commitment, not only to support participants and students but to be there for one another as a staff community," said Christie McKay, Executive Director of Briya Public Charter School. "During this unprecedented year, our team moved forward together with innovation and respect while remaining grounded in our shared Social Change Model."
Today, these vibrant organizations have nearly 800 employees with a variety of backgrounds and expertise who are dedicated to the wellbeing of their 60,000 participants – and to making Mary's Center a top-quality leader among the 1,400 Community Health Centers in the country and Briya a Tier 1 public charter school.
Out of 200 total companies honored this year, the Mary's Center & Briya Public Charter School partnership was one of 32 to be recognized in the large category.
