This is just a small update about the companies list. There have been about 15 new additions to it over the past week. Those new additions are listed below. We had some feedback that we should list the new additions in the post to make it easier for people.
Some other feedback we received was that it would be easier if we broke our list down by state. We are now in the process of creating pages for each state with companies that are located there. Currently there are only 4 states done, but we should have it all up and running by the end of the week. This can be found by clicking here. As of this post there is only Alabama, Arizona, Alaska, and Arkansas up. We have all the companies sorted out, so it shouldn’t take too long to have everything up. We’re just combing through them to find specific locations to better help out our users.
There have also been small updates to other sections, like the Voting Rights section. A few laws have changed, and we updated it accordingly. There are also some minor tweaks to the way the comments work. For some reason it was displaying very old comments from 2012 & 2013 at the top. This has been fixed and the newest comments should be displaying properly. We also had some site issues that were causing pages to not be readable. This problem should (hopefully) be fixed now, and everything will display correctly. Sorry about that.
That’s it for now. We’ll be working to get everything up and running over the next few days. Thank you for your patience.
I am happy to have found this website. Please direct me as to where to find housing for ex-offenders in the Port Charlotte, FL area as there is always a problem getting housing for them. I am a a Social Worker, providing free housing and employment searches for homeless persons, many of whom have felonies. Housing is a hard area for most of them. Is there an app or a website that would be of help for Charlotte County, FL? Thanks
I am a Recovery Coach in the Akron, Ohio area and I work with a lot of ex-offenders trying to rebuild their lives. This is very helpful.
I am so thankful to have had this very helpful resource at my disposal. You are awesome!
Thank you so much for your website, you have no idea how bad I needed to know I am not alone. I live in Florida an have been looking for a Decent job for over a month . I cannot work a Minimum wage job an live. I myself have a history that seems to follow me no matter what job I try for, never minds a better paying job to live on. From the Bottom of my heart I want to thank you for being here for me to NOT ” feel so alone !!”
I glad this site is available for returning citizens population can obtain information for employers willing to hire and allow them a second chance. Simply awesome.
I’m very grateful to have found your website.
We have found that all too often the type of offense is what determines any employment opportunities and for our family, my husband has been hired and then fired almost immediately, as if they didn’t bother doing a bg ck BEFORE telling him he was hired. One place went so far as to give him his work schedule THEN the day before his first shift, withdrew their offer! It is heartless to get someone’s hopes up and just dash em out so abruptly!
I’m wondering if there is a way to categorize these jobs by “offense”? That way ppl don’t waste their time or the employers time applying for jobs not available because of their individual charges.
It may just be my location, but the Walgreens I work at currently employs a felon on work release, which is amazing.
There is a company called north west pallets and they are very felon friendly. They are based out of Illinois but I got on in California
Thank you for this! I’m shocked to see just how many companies will openly discriminate against anyone with a felony. I’m a graphic designer with a drunk driving accident, and two of the biggest agencies in my area have both refused to work with me, essentially blacklisting me from a 25+ year career! I didn’t think this would be the tough part!
Thanks for everything you do in making our lives a little easier!!
