“Mentor an Ex-Convict. Volunteer for an organization like Ready4Work and provide job advise and emotional support to one of the 650,000 adults released from incarceration each year.”
President Barack Obama talks about his plan for faith based community programs, including Ready4Work, in Zanesville, OH on July 1, 2008.
Ready4Work is the most nationally recognized ex-offender reentry program praised by three consecutive U.S. Presidents. Our program saves tax payers money by effectively transitioning clients into the workforce while producing dramatically reduced recidivism rates.
Using our unique tools, we increase gainful employment and decrease criminal activity aiding to revitalize neighborhoods.
In short, we rebuild lives, restore communities and renew hope.
The effects of incarceration and recidivism can be seen in every town in America and across the world…Ready4Work can help. Since inception, Operation New Hope has invested millions of dollars toward building and improving the Ready4Work program. By learning from both our struggles and successes, we have been able to build a program that can be replicated in other communities.
