Gainful employment is a crucial part in helping men and women released from prison to stay out. Without a job they can't - exactly like the rest of us - pay rent, pay for groceries, etc.
There are tax-breaks available from the Federal government for businesses that hire men and women released from prison. Insurance bonding is available through the Nebraska Department of Labor.
We work closely with businesses in Nebraska willing to hire men and women released from prison. Inmates that have gone through our Job Skills program successfully get a certificate stating they have completed the class. In this program we teach skills such as:
- Work Ethics
- Living on a Budget
- Personal Appearance
- Workplace Behavior
- Non-violent Conflict Solving
Volunteers from the Nebraska business community are guest speaker/teachers for many classes in the program. This ensures that skills that are relevant to becoming a good employee are taught to the men and women participating in the program.
If your business or organization is interested in hiring men and women being released from prison, we can help. We can provide training and information and we can assist in conflict resolution in the rare event that this would be needed.
