We don't promise a job, but the more you focus, the more opportunities and interviews you'll receive
Many people returning home from prison are highly motivated to break their personal cycles
of crime and incarceration, but need a helping hand. A multi-sector collaboration of government and nonprofit
agencies and employers (the Greater Chicago Reentry Coalition) believes that opportunities change behavior,
and that helping ‘returning citizens’ who need our support will promote safe Chicagoland communities.
Help yourself and others by joining us!
We are a network of training programs, supportive services, career fairs and employers helping returning citizens and at-risk job candidates reach economic stability.

This collaborative is ground breaking since it’s multi-sector including nonprofits, employers, and government.
