Ex-offender Workforce Development Program
This program consists of the nonprofit reaching out to community employers and developing partnerships and collaborations to gain stable employment for clients. Criminal backgrounds are barriers to gainful employment, and employers need to be educated on how to dismiss their prejudices against ex-offenders. We work with the client to prepare them for interviews and show them how to successfully gain the employer's confidence, so they will be the best candidate for the job. This program works in collaboration with our Employment Assistance Program.
