There are re-entry programs in every state, county and some cities in this country, the question is are they working? Most re-entry programs consist of job readiness, resume writting, One-Stop Job Services.
The Department of Labor’s goal is to help prison inmates get good paying jobs after
they return to their homes. Our experience has shown that most inmates do not know
how to go about this. Even in prison, inmates can do a number of things that will
increase their future employability. Once ex-offenders return to their communities they
can do more. The State, County, City are supposed to provide prisoners with contacts
and other information that can help them to prepare for release and know where to go
for assistance in finding a job.
But we have to consider the fact that the ex-offender population in this country is and forever will be the forgotten society. Trust and fear play a major role in the advancement of the ex-offender.
Federal programs are generally designed to help people who need a job, housing,
