Getting out of jail and readjusting to life can be a daunting task. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the transition from incarceration to typical daily life. Will you be able to find a home? Can you get a new job? Some people do not know where to turn for help and guidance. There are several organizations that have made it their goal to help ex-offenders, and we are going to share 5 of them with you today. ABC Bail Bonds wants to help Harris County inmates get back into a normal routine, fast.
Texas ReEntry Services
If you or a loved one needs assistance finding housing or employment after incarceration, Texas ReEntry Services is a great place to turn. They assist ex-offenders in finding housing after release for up to 2 years. They also offer job training services and guidance toward finding gainful employment options. They even assist with resume writing and job referrals.
Project RIO trains ex-offenders in all the things they need to know in order to secure employment post release. They offer workshops, help create resumes, fill out job applications and help prepare and practice for job interviews. They also can give direction to other community services one might need on their road to recovery.
Goodwill Industries is often a reference given to ex-offenders as a place to find employment after release. Goodwill also provides training and certificates to help their employees grow beyond their company; think of them as a stepping-stone. They even provide counselors who work with employees to set up the exact training and support services they specifically need to continue forward in their lives.
2nd Chances 4 Felons
A great database to find gainful employment is 2nd Chances 4 Felons. On their website, they have extensive lists of companies who employ ex-offenders, as well as their contact information and where and how to apply for those positions. If ever you feel no one wants to hire you because of your record, look no further.
Texas Offenders Re-entry Initiative (T.O.R.I.)
T.O.R.I works to help ex-offenders become reacclimated to society and maximize their existing potential. They provide guidance in creating resumes, job interviews, time management and filling out job applications. They also help ex-offenders get set up with housing programs so they can safely begin their new journey.
