Center for Employment Opportunities puts you to work while working with you to find full time employment

[Center for Employment Opportunities – ceoworks.org]

Are you or a loved one currently on parole or probation? Are they experiencing hardships in finding employment? Center for Employment Opportunities is a nationwide non-profit Workforce Development organization that puts you to work while we work with you to find full time employment.

Many of our offices are equipped to work with individuals who are required to register and have been successful in connecting them with employers in the region.

To become a participant of our work crews, please contact your case manager or parole agent to have them refer you to one of our site locations. We have offices across the U.S. and multiple offices in California.

You are not a worker drone. You are not a slave. Do not provide under-fair-wage labor for the system that exploits oppresses you. PFRs should be doing the opposite of finding employment. They should be imposing a burden on society proportionate to the undue burden society places on them. Hard work will not restore your rights or grant you respect. Society must be forced to pay the true cost of its carceral policies.

I agree we shouldn’t encourage exploitation or oppression of any person, however many lives might be sacrificed, never reaching their full potential with that approach, and perhaps in vain at that.

I personally benefited from being placed by a Christian ministry with an employer that values us as persons as well as employees and am doing very well today by God’s grace. Both my employer and I are successful as a direct result of their willingness to invest in our potential. Consequently, I can now help others in meaningful ways and contribute to the cause of seeing a day without the registry. This was done in spite of a system that was designed (and probably secretly hoping) for us to fail.

I also recognize that there are places here in this country that are so oppressive, that any potential is snuffed out before it has a chance to flicker into flame. It is a logical conclusion that those communities should bear the burden of the failed policies they promulgate. We should not let them sweep the people affected aside for others to deal with, but rather confront them with the fallout of their actions.

I pray that one day, the faces of registrants staring back from the Internet might be recognized for the indictment that it is against this injustice, much like the faces of other oppressed groups are doing from the pages of history.

As with most of these organizations, they don’t provide help for Registrants.
