There are a few updates to Exoffenders.net, mostly with the jobs page and the local job search engine. The local search has been running incredibly slow over the past few weeks, and we’re working on that right now. It may be unavailable periodically while we’re trying to fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience on that, and we hope to have it fixed and running properly soon.
It’s been a while since there has been any posts made regarding new things or updates to Exoffenders.net. There have been a few updates over the past few months, just nothing major. Right now there are a few things going on in both Kay and my life that are taking priority. We do apologize for this, and we’re trying to work on the backlog of comments and emails that this site has received.
There will be a new section coming to this site soon on the topic of finding a place to live with a criminal record. This is something that we’ve wanted to work on and add for a while, but neither Kay or myself had much experience in that area until recently. So that will be added and will hopefully be a good resource for people struggling to find a place to live. In addition to that, we’re going to be writing some articles about things that ex-offenders face besides finding a job or finding a place to live.
The national project that we were spending most of our time working on has hit a bit of a brick wall. We aren’t sure how it’s going to play out, and are leaving it in the hands of our attorney. We hope that we can move forward with this as we had intended, and will keep everyone updated when something changes with this.
That’s about it for now. There’s a lot of work to catch up on, and we have to get to it![gap size=”10px”] [line]
Thank you for your hard work and dedication in providing these resources! As an Adult Probation Officer, I struggle daily to locate resources that will assist my clients in carving out new lives for themselves. Employment and housing are the two largest barriers to those with criminal records in changing their lives. It is in our best interest to offer opportunities to whomever is willing to take advantage of them in order to rebuild their lives and become productive members of society. Employment not only provides a means of survival, but also provides the self-confidence and hope for the future so many ex-offenders lack. Please keep up your good work!
