In 2004 Bob Jackson decided to do something about the rate of recidivism for ex-offenders in Georgia. Working with government officials on several levels, and with help from their corporate sponsor Southwire Inc, The Re-Entry Coalition officially opened their doors in 2008. Since then, they were chosen as a recipient of the Partner Agency of the Year Award in 2009 by the Department of Corrections. Bob himself has received an award from the United States Attorney General’s office for Outstanding Community service and Partnership. In 2011 they launched a partnership with Tip Top Poultry to hire ex-felons and today there are over 70 people employed through this program.
