The Dunham Fund is supporting Restoring Inmates To America’s Society (RITAS)’s new Transitional Jobs program with a $1,000 grant. This grant will support the ongoing work of RITAS Ministry, a faith-based nonprofit organization that provides a holistic approach to help reintegrate former inmates back into society.
The Transitional Jobs program is part of a pilot program that will help former inmates living in the Fox Valley return to the workforce. The program will focus on assisting people with criminal records and limited employment experience find jobs that combine real work, skill development and training, and support. Participants in the Transitional Jobs program will receive the coaching and assistance they need to build vocational skills and become productive employees.
