Untapped Talent - Returning Citizens
Stable employment is a vital pathway to financial stability for returning citizens and a key factor in reducing recidivism.
Nearly 6,000 individuals statewide return to communities seeking employment so they can rebuild their lives. When returning citizens work, they can showcase, strengthen, and develop skills. Earning income contributes to buying power and asset building while also giving individuals an opportunity to transform their financial capability. Join the conversation about the importance of employers seeking untapped talent to fill positions and how community organizations are building relationships to connect employers with returning citizens.
