Goodwill Industries International has received an investment from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to fund a new program that helps young adults find jobs after a period of incarceration.
“People coming home after a period of incarceration have always faced challenges landing good job opportunities, but never more so than now,” said Steve Preston, president and CEO, Goodwill Industries International. “With high unemployment due to COVID-19, people looking for a second chance will need every form of assistance they can get in an effort to successfully move forward with their lives.”
