"By EcOp giving me exposure to my current employer, it was my foot in the door. They wouldn't have even looked twice at me if it wasn't for EcOp.
It's good to finally be judged by your merits and not by something you did 25 years ago."
Kevin, 2009 EcOp Graduate
The mission of EcOp is to equip ex-offenders with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to obtain stable employment and economic empowerment. Absent stable employment, the experience is that many prisoners will wind up being rearrested for new crimes and return to prison.
