Resources by State

Exoffenders Blog 28 Comments



So I’ve started undertaking the project of putting resources by each state. It’s going to have a completely separate page from the current “Resources” one as that will be used primarily for online blogs, forums, and the like such as this. I feel that this blog could be a great stop for ex-offenders trying to obtain employment or assistance. Doing a google search on some felon-related help topics all I find are random garbage, filled with Ads and trying to get you to join silly websites to make 5 dollars a month. Or they’re just straight up scams.  So I’m going to undertake the massive task of listing each states assistance programs, complete with links directly to the website, and addresses. It’s going to take a while, as I have to research each state individually. I’ll be starting in alphabetical order so if you live in Alabama, you’re in luck. Wyoming however, it’s going to be a while.

I thank everyone who has checked out my site in the past, and for the positive feedback that people have given it thus far. The only thing I ask is that if you have a friend or family member that’s struggling to overcome the roadblocks of reentry into society, please refer them here. Its always appreciated. Now, I shall start researching assistance programs in Alabama.

I’ve been sober for 3 years was recently arrested and given a contempt sentence. I’ve never plead guilty or had a trail so I don’t know what kind of chance I have of getting a clerical job. I have physical problems that prevent me from doing anything that involves standing or lifting, plus I’m in my 50’s. I’ve seen some work at home things but so many of them seem to be scams. Anyone have any ideas?

  9. What state does your son live in? There are nationwide federally funded resource centers called One-Stops. You can find a location near you at http://www.servicelocator.org. Many of the centers received funding to assist ex-offenders. Not having access to a computer is a problem. I teach job search workshops to ex-offenders. We tell job seekers, as with all populations of job seekers, you have to focus on your strengths and abilities anytime you are doing job search. There are employers who hire ex-offenders, a person has to demonstrate that they have turned their life around, and that they have skills needed for the job.
