CSOSA is launching the “Hire One” campaign to directly connect area employers with a pool of talented justice-involved people who are ready, able, and eager to work.
In our decades of supervising people on probation, parole, and supervised release in the District of Columbia, CSOSA has found that gainful employment is a cornerstone of stability and growth. However, too often, those who have been involved in the justice system find that their past transgressions continue to be obstacles to their progress. Second Chance hiring provides an opportunity to move toward a brighter future. That’s why CSOSA is asking area employers to pledge to “Hire One” of its referrals.
“Hire One,” an expansion of CSOSA’s job placement efforts, aims to pair employers with an untapped and under-utilized pool of talent. Businesses that have hired people under CSOSA supervision report that these employees are among the most dedicated, hardworking, and loyal in their workforce. Employers interested in joining the program can contact Vocational Development Coordinator Tony Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In coming weeks, CSOSA will unveil a series of videos that answer the question “Why Hire One?” Stay tuned to hear answers directly from businesses that have already partnered with us.
