Dave's Killer Bread: Facts about 2nd Chance Employment

BUILD A LOYAL WORKFORCE

There’s a common misconception that people with a criminal past are a challenge, are difficult. This is just not true. A recent survey of HR professionals shows they aren’t finding any difference between the performance of people who have been incarcerated and others in their organizations. < https://daveskillerbreadfoundation.acemlna.com/lt.php?s=36747de35c8ab2f10425a0581e886174&i=25A35A1A79> And anecdotal evidence suggests these workers may become an employer’s most diligent, motivated staff members because those employees understand that the job is their shot at starting over.

Winfield Correctional Facility: Community Meeting for Spiritual Life Center

 WCF is constructing a freestanding Spiritual Life Center. 

Many criminal offenders have multiple addictions to alcohol and/or other drugs, weak problem solving and self-management skills, poor parenting skills, and low self-esteem. Offenders also tend to establish poor priorities in life and are involved in dysfunctional relationships. Faith communities play a significant role in the lives of offendersby providing hope, compassion, and helping them to understand and internalize ultimate issues.The Winfield Correctional Facility Spiritual Life Center will provide opportunities for offenders from diverse faiths to develop and restore relationships with God, their families, communities and crime victims.

Wichita Work Release introduces 2 new groups: Incarcerated Veteran's group and "3-Week" Parenting C

April 16th Wichita Work Release in partnership with the Salvation Army and Department of Veteran's Affairs began and "Offender" led process group for incarcerated Veteran's wishing to upgrade the discharge and seek benefits, to include Bonding, WOTC, Housing, and other issues that impact Veteran's as well as our client population. 

Note's from Rick Husselman, Mentor Coordinator where as follows:

  • We have set our inaugural meeting with the incarcerated vets for 600 pm Tuesday April 16. We will then meet every 3rd Tuesday night in the TC at 6 pm. After the initial meeting none of us necessarily have to be present at other meetings (although I’ll probably make them throughout the summer just to keep them on track.)

  • Tammy and Regina were present April 16th once Corey and/or I introduce the group and what we hope to get out of it.

  • Corey and I, along with Lundin, will determine who the vets are at WWRF and make sure they are notified.

  • Corey and I will advertise the meeting

  • We should meet and “de-brief” within a week of the first meeting and discuss it and make any corrections that need made.

Hiring Former Offenders Has Gone from Good Deed to Economic Necessity

Hiring Former Offenders Has Gone from Good Deed to Economic Necessity

The political and policy network aligned with the conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch is launching a $4 million pilot project to help former prisoners successfully reenter society.

The so-called Safe Streets & Second Chances project will be among the topics the Kochs and several hundred like-minded donors will explore this weekend when they gather near Palm Springs, Calif., for the network's annual winter meeting.
