Finding employment after being released from prison

Posted by Emily Jensen on August 11, 2016 at 12:20 AM

Sometimes when a person is released from prison, they realize that they never want to experience that again.  They realize that they may have made mistakes when they were younger that led them on a path that they are ready to walk away from, but in some cases the damage may already be done and they might have a hard time getting back on the right path and finding employment where the employer can look past the decisions that they have made in the past.  Some of these decisions might even have been because their diagnosis is some sort of a mental health issue that was not being treated at the time, but they now have it under control and they are ready to give things a second chance.  There are organizations out there like Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, that help these people to rehabilitate and get back on their feet.  To get more information on their program and see if they might have placement available go to their website at:
