Montgomery County DA’s office hosting job fair Tuesday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office will host its third Second Chance Job Fair on Tuesday.
The event will be from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Multiplex at Cramton Bowl.
The district attorney’s office says that the job fair is open to everyone, however, it is focusing on connecting ex-offenders with businesses who are willing to give them a fresh start.
“When it comes to people with criminal convictions, the dignity of work is an important part of rehabilitation. However, having a criminal background can often make it difficult for ex-offenders to get back into the workforce. Obtaining a job is an important factor in staying out of trouble and keeping recidivism (re-offending) rates low. Finding a job can help ex-offenders begin a new life, support their families, and become successful, contributing members of their communities,” the announcement read.
More than 40 businesses and resource providers are expected. As part of the job fair, Legal Services Alabama will offer an expungement clinic to assist justice involved individuals with clearing their criminal record of certain misdemeanor charges. Legal Services Alabama representatives will also aid attendees who need help with Emergency Rental Assistance applications.
