Employment can help returning citizens stay out of jail. That’s a fact.

It’s easier said than done. Between lapses in work experience, discriminatory employment practices and a lack of simple things like an ID, finding employment continues to be a daunting barrier to reentry for many formerly incarcerated individuals.

That’s why Councilman Allan Domb‘s office is teaming up with Patrick Kirby, a store manager at Lowe’s Home Improvement on Roosevelt Boulevard, and Casey O’Donnell, CEO of Impact Services in Kensington, to help returning citizens hone their job interview skills.

Mock interviews with returning citizens having a hard time landing a job are happening today, Feb. 14. at Impact Services Corporation on Allegheny Avenue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A nonprofit, a corporation and a public official partnering to help returning citizens find work? Sounds like our kind of Valentine’s Day.
