Finding employment with a criminal record is not easy. For justice involved youth and adults, the employment landscape includes background checks, that can be overshadowed by probation or parole, housing concerns, limited or inadequate education and job skills, and mental health issues.

However, there are programs and initiatives out there through the public workforce system and our partners to assist with the process Workforce GPS’s Reentry Employment Opportunities Community offers practitioners new ideas and tools to do the invaluable work of changing lives and renewing futures of former offenders.  In addition, to this site, we have gathered a list of resources, webinars and organizations that focus on providing assistance to adults re-entering the workforce.
