Goodwill Industries of the Valleys is dedicated to providing effective, comprehensive employment services to men and women with criminal convictions. Our Prisoner Re-Entry services provide a level of structure and supervision to returning citizens that fosters confidence and skill building necessary for a successful transition to a stable productive life.

Reconnecting with the labor force can be challenging for anyone. Add a criminal history to the scenario and it can seem impossible. At Goodwill, individuals with a criminal history, who want to work, are assisted with preparing to go to work and maintaining regular employment. The program provides a road map for participants to achieve a long-term goal of remaining attached to the legitimate workforce and maintaining their freedom.

Services available through Goodwill Industries of the Valleys Prisoner Re-Entry program include:

  • Job readiness education
  • Job search support
  • Interview coaching
  • Resume development
  • Help to identify other community resources available to assist with successful return to the community
