Our impact and contributions to our community!
We do more than connect ex-offenders to background friendly employers, we host felon friendly job fairs, reentry focused community forums and film screenings, "expungement" clinics, grocery and toy giveaways to ex-offenders and their families, support groups and job readiness workshops. Take a look at what we have done in the community since 2014!
#EndCashBail: Freedom Should Not Be Determined On How Much Money Is In Your Bank Account
Entrepreneurship Workshop 5/5/18
Got a criminal record? Tired of having doors closed in your face because of it? Well, open the door yourself by becoming your own boss! Please join us this Saturday, May 5th, at 2pm to hear how other ex-offenders refused to let their past keep them down and are now successful entrepreneurs! SCORE will also do a brief presentation on business finance basics and give great tips on what to expect when applying for small business loans.
Restoration Service " From Mess to Masterpiece: Even Broken Crayons Still Color" was held at Phillips Temple CME church on 7/29/17 to re-connect and fellowship with returning citizens.
Our 2nd annual "One Stop Shop" Resource & Job Fair for individuals with criminal records was a huge success! Over 150 people came to connect with community resource agencies and felon friendly employers. Thanks to all of the sponsors of the event, one of our board directors, Marti Owens, Brandy Kennedy and The Shifting Project, Ron Person and Hangman Business Installation, Chick-fil-A Macon Road, Michael Sterling, Marshal Greg Countryman and the Muscogee County Marshal's Office. We even had the opportunity to feature our new project Faith's Restorations Faithful Restorations as a vendor (stay tuned for more info on how this project will truly bless others.) Lastly, we would like to thank our founder's pastor, Gregory Scott of PhillipsTemple CME Church, for being a vendor to speak with, pray and talk to individuals in need of prayer and spiritual consultation.
