Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development’s Department of Career Services, Reentry and Reemployment unit work on the demand side of the reentry initiative. Work involves educating employers on the benefits of hiring ex-offenders as well as developing relationships to give the employer a sense of support.
On the supply side of reentry, formally incarcerated individuals that are customers at a career center are eligible for job search services.
The Reentry Unit collaborates with Sheriffs Offices, Department of Corrections, Faith Based, Nonprofits organizations and some local police station to developed a support network that assist both customers - the employer and ex-offender.
