Research and common sense tell us that if an individual with a criminal record is going to remain "crime free" he or she needs the self-sufficiency and stability provided by regular employment.
Safer has a range of programs and services to help formerly incarcerated individuals find employment.
Each year, Safer Foundation helps thousands of people with criminal records choose a new direction of responsibility, education, and productivity. Without intervention, 52 percent return to prison. By contrast, fewer than 22 percent of those receiving Safer’s services go back.
These services are at the heart of Safer's approach to helping people with criminal records find employment upon re-entering society. MORE >
Safer Foundation is the only private agency to administer two secured residential transition centers on behalf of the Illinois Department of Corrections. MORE >
While many formerly incarcerated individuals have advanced workplace knowledge and educational/vocational training, many others struggle to secure permanent employment due to a lack of marketable work experience. Transitional Employment is one of the most effective initiatives for helping returnees find jobs upon re-entry. MORE >
