The featured speaker during CRESC’s December 2017 meeting was Kia Hansard, Dauphin County Director for the Center For Employment Opportunities (CEO). Hansard provided an overview of CEO’s focus in job placement for ex-offenders, including a four step program model that gets ex-offenders working in “transitional work” during the second week of the program. Hansard discussed the efforts of CEO’s Business Account Managers to place program participants in full-time, permanent jobs in the community and highlighted the cash incentives (up to $500!) that CEO offers for retaining employment for at least 365 days.

CRESC would like to thank Ms. Hansard for sharing her afternoon with us and supporting successful ex-offender reentry by providing employment services to ex-offenders in Dauphin County.
