Jobs open the doors to success for former inmates

Jobs open the doors to success for former inmates | Library@CSNSW | Scoop.it
Destitute, jobless, often with no place to call home and forced to couch surf, it is only a matter of time before they end up incarcerated for some low-level criminal infraction. San Antonio has always provided a variety of safety nets for those in dire straits. For many former inmates with mental health issues, the obstacles are overwhelming, and they often opt to do without rather than attempt to navigate the system. Accessing available resources has been a bit easier for those being released from custody. Since July, Bexar County has offered recently released criminal defendants triage that goes beyond their medical needs through the Re-entry Program, which operated under the county’s Judicial Services Department. Many of the formerly incarcerated have limited education; they may have a GED but no computer skills or formal job training. The center, in conjunction with services available through Bibliotech, the county’s all-digital library, helps clients set up email accounts and draft résumés that highlight the skills they may have acquired while incarcerated.
