We are privileged to be in partnership with the City of Jacksonville to reduce crime and recidivism.
Support from the City of Jacksonville enables POC to make job search services available for the nearly 2500 men and women returning to Duval County from prison annually. Studies show gainful employment is a key factor in preventing *recidivism (*the return to prison for new offenses).
Our comprehensive job search service includes an initial appointment which takes approximately 2 hours. During this time, one of our Jobs Specialists assesses the clients' skills, creates a resume, performs a job search, submits resumes, and provides interview training. Depending on their skill sets, some clients may be scheduled for an interview for a potential position immediately. We also provide transportation to job interviews if needed.
Though we only take men into our residential program, we provide Job Search Services to both men and women who are returning to the community from prison.
