Already a very successful job development and placement agency in New York City for many years, Blessed Ministeries, Inc (BMI) started working in urban Essex County in the State of New Jersey in the Spring of 2009. Their goal was to work with the hardest-to- place individuals who reside in Newark, especially substance abusers in treatment most of who are convicted felons. In under six months, BMI placed over 100 individuals in jobs averaging $9 an hour with retention rates at 180 days of about 75%. This very productive agency, led by its talented leader - Sean Lacon - helped dispel a myth endemic in Newark and BMI proved that even in the midst of one of the worse recessions in our lifetimes, employers are willing to hire convicted felons with sustance abuse disorders when these individuals are appropriately screened, matched with the right job, and provided with regular support. This is one more example of the outstanding job BMI has done over the years in New York and now Jersey.

New York and Jersey. Comfortable with performance based contracts, BMI always exceed expectations.

The flexibility and creativity of its leader - Sean Lacon - and the outcomes based business model he has created

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

place and retention tens of thousands of hard-to-place individuals that hertofore have not been helped by other job development and placement agencies.

Blessed Ministries Inc. has been a blessing to us here at Five Guys Restaurant at the Millburn Mall. We started hiring some of our employees since November 2009 through them and so far, I would say 90% of them have been great. We deal mostly with Tiffany Gelpi and she is such a joy to work with. She is always very up-beat and helpful. Any issue we had with our employees from BMI, be it scheduling, work ethics, etc; Tiffany had dealt with it in a very professional and most importantly, timely manner.In fact, all the individuals (BMI staff)that we have met in the past have been very friendly and helpful.I highly recommend BMI to businesses that need to hire a high volume of staff but do not have the time to do so because BMI does a very good job in pre-screening the individuals that meet your criteria(s) for your business.
