This site was established with one mission. To help people.
- We help the formerly incarcerated find job opportunities, enabling them to reintegrate into society and into the workforce.
- We help companies find talented and committed employees and help their businesses through incentives for hiring them.
- We help society by helping reduce recidivism and making our communities safer.
According to Bureau of Justice Statistics, an estimated 70 million U.S. adults have arrest or conviction records. In the past a criminal record has been a barrier to entry in the workplace, making lawful employment difficult and continuing the cycle of crime. Children of felons are seven times more likely to be incarcerated themselves.
Studies have shown that employment dramatically reduces recidivism. Statewide rates of recidivism range from about 31 to 70 percent, while the rates for those placed in jobs shortly after their release ranged from 3.3 to 8 percent!
Aside from reducing crime and helping out another human being that can use a hand, there are many other benefits to hiring an ex felon. Please consider hiring one!
