According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, more than half (67.5%) of the persons annually released from prison in America are re-arrested within 3 years of their release from incarceration. Women and men returning from incarceration rarely have sufficient education, training or skill-sets that would enable them to obtain livable wage employment. Many of our women have difficulty obtaining minimum wage employment because most employers are still not “background friendly”.
As a direct response to meet the needs for education and on-the- job training of its clients, ODWIN has launched “Change A Life! Nehemiah Project”. This Project will provide Job Readiness training for men and women in retail sales, small business management, office administration, and accounting.
