Safer Foundation has been serving individuals with arrest and conviction records in the Quad City area for 45 years. We assist individuals in overcoming the barriers they face in obtaining employment and help them build the life that they desire. Past involvement with the justice system doesn’t have to hinder future goals and possibilities.

Our programs provide individuals an array of employment services and support. Through our “Safer Skills Training” job readiness workshops, we offer career exploration, resume building, interview preparation, and job search resources.

We have resources to help an individual understand their record and can connect them to possible options for sealing or expungement. Safer also offers help to equip clients to be their own best advocate.

Case managers assist clients in developing their blueprint for success – exploring potential career pathways; linking them with training opportunities in high growth, in-demand industries; navigating financial aid options; and connecting clients and local employers who are hiring.

Through referrals to community partners, Safer can assist with access to shelter, food, transportation, substance abuse or mental health support, civil legal counsel, and an array of other supportive services to sustain progress towards securing and retaining employment.

Whether searching for gainful employment or looking to enhance skill sets through a degree program, occupational training, or apprenticeship opportunities, we can guide individuals through the process. A Safer Foundation personal career coach or case manager will walk individuals through the specifics and find the right program and training opportunity to match their career goals.

At Safer we believe in the power of the individual and we believe in Second Chances. The magic is believing in oneself – if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
