Being employed and productive
can keep you out of jail.
We’re here to help with that.
The United States Sentencing Commission reports that within eight years of release, more than 49% of released prisoners are rearrested. Recidivism costs states more than $52 billion each year for incarceration. An unemployed former offender is much more likely to return to prison than one who is employed and feels productive.
MJH's Resource Center offers computer access for online job applications, resume writing and video resumes. My Journey Home also provides referrals and job postings for MJH program-registered individuals.
My Journey Home processes individuals weekly for employment prequalification, resume writing, interviewing skills and to obtain important information regarding the Federal Bonding Program and EEOC rules. We call this process a "Workforce Development Workshop." These workshops are held twice weekly, and we recommend you call us to schedule ahead of time. Due to the high volume of clients seen weekly, this allows more time for one-on-one service to all clients.
From 2008 to 2012, MJH had an 83% success rate in placing clients in employment.
