The MassHire South Shore Workforce Board represents 22 cities and towns in eastern Massachusetts.  The region is anchored by the City of Quincy to the North bordering the City of Boston and the Town of Plymouth to the South stretching to Cape Cod.  The region is a mix of unique communities from quintessential small New England towns and villages along the coast, expansive rural communities to the south, and larger dense urban centers to the North.

The South Shore is a vibrant region, rich in history, cultural resources, recreational amenities, with a diversity of housing and employment opportunities.  Public transportation services are more prevalent in the northern communities, providing easy and efficient access to the Greater Boston market area via public rail and commuter boat service.  Many of the communities throughout the region are interconnected by Commuter Rail and various forms of bus transportation services.
