FIND YOUR TALENTS AND PUT THEM TO WORK
When you come to Safer Foundation, we meet you where you are on your journey to reentry. That means assessing your strengths, skills, and needs to guide you on the best path forward.
Whether you are newly released, currently incarcerated, or have been back in society for an extended time, there’s a Safer Foundation job readiness and placement program that fits your unique goals, qualifications, and skillset.
Transitional employment offers the unique opportunity to earn a wage while gaining skills that lead to self-sufficiency and success in the workplace. We combine time-limited, wage-paid work experience, job skills training, and supportive services to help you overcome barriers to employment.
How We Help
Immediate Work + Skills Training
If you are planning on reentering society in the next six months, have reentered society in the past six months, or are still under supervision, we’ll work with you to address your immediate employment needs upon reentry, including:
• Strengthened soft skills
• Raised reading and math levels to pass entry exams
• Financial support for entry-level certifications
• Post-training employment
• Early expungement/record sealing
