Re-Entry Service Employment Program/Illinois
« on: April 25, 2011, 10:21:41 AM »

This website was created by the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) and Chicago Jobs Council as a project of the Governor's Working Group on Community Safety and Re-Entry to bring together the growing body of workforce resources available to those who assist ex-offenders.

Due to the growing need for resources amongst ex-offender job seekers and guidance to employment in hiring ex-offenders IDES is expanding the website to include these important reentry clients.
New Publication!


Re-Employment Services Workshop

We hope that the resources we have assembled will assist front line, service provider staff to better understand their clients, work more efficiently with employers, and help their clients access all the resources and supports they will need to be successful in the workplace.

Additionally, we hope that the resources and information provided serve the needs of the job seeker in overcoming his/her barriers to employment as well as giving employers important information and support when considering ex-offenders as employees.
What Do We Mean by "Ex-Offenders?"

For the purpose of this website, we refer to a person with a criminal record as an "ex-offender." Of course, this term does not tell you whether a person has spent time incarcerated, the type of crime committed, whether the person was falsely convicted, or the final result or disposition of their criminal charges. Still, because we believe it is the most commonly used and generic term, we have elected to use it here for consistency and clarity.
Do not value the "things" you have in your life - value "who" you have in your life....
