What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

People returning from incarceration face a multitude of barriers. Employment, transportation, and housing are three of the greatest obstacles, and without these stabilizing factors, people are less connected to their communities and therefore, far more likely to re-offend and return to incarceration. Without successful reentry programs like Ready4Work, communities experience higher rates of crime, unemployment, and recidivism, which are all drains on the local tax base and overall economy. Our Ready4Work program is designed to: • Deliver wrap around services that support people affected by the criminal justice system to break the cycle of poverty and incarceration, • Provide training in relevant, career-pathway skills to meet the needs of modern industry, • Promote second chance hiring practices to make good on diversity, equity, and inclusion goals, • Prepare employers to receive workers from this community and challenge stigmas.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Ready4Work

We created a program to address the concerns, and expectations surrounding employing the formerly incarcerated. Implementing a 4-pronged approach (case management and mental health, supportive services, job training, and job placement assistance), our Ready4Work reentry program ensures each client succeeds at reconnecting to the workforce, their families, and community. We build stronger communities for formerly incarcerated people by creating opportunities through strategic partnerships with faith-based organizations, local businesses, community partners, and the judicial system. The success of the program is evident in the transformation stories of our clients, enhanced hiring practices for employment partners, healthier communities and families, and better public safety. Our recidivism rate illustrates the success and cost-savings of our program. The Florida Department of Corrections reports a 3-year recidivism rate of 24.5%, our recidivism rate for the same cohort is 8.64%.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization's goals are to serve more returning citizens, be the leader in virtual delivery of re-entry services, develop a statewide network of re-entry supports with 2-4 full Ready4Work sites, virtual tools,
and a partner network, and develop a longer-term focus on regional growth.

Our strategies include expanding program locations, bringing select vocational skills training in house, growing the mental health team in 2021, evaluating our programs, and creating a virtual Ready4Work program.
