Our foundation focuses on education and workforce development based solutions for our biggest challenge: the real unemployment rate in the East End. With this particular program, we are taking on the most difficult part of that challenge — job placement for ex-offenders. 4,000-6,000 DC residents return from incarceration to the District each year. The unemployment rate for returning citizens is estimated to be in the 45-50% range. This program will place a minimum of 1,250 returning citizens per year into meaningful employment.
