Congratulations to our client, Jordan, on his new job as a forklift operator!
One week after completing our program, our client, Candido, landed a job as a cook at the Light Rail Cafe in Jersey City. He had a tremendous amount of experience; he had worked as a head cook in federal prison for more than 20 years, where he also supervised 20 additional employees. Originally given a release date of 2035, Candido was among more than 200 individuals who were granted clemency by President Barack Obama in 2016. Video by Stefanie Campolo
We were pleased to have a surprise visit from Vernett today! She is a former client of Helena Muhammad and Jim McGreevey from the Integrity House unit of the Hudson County Correctional Center. Today, she is six years sober, enrolled in college to become a drug and alcohol counselor, and on track to graduate next spring. She stopped by Martin’s Place this morning to share her success story, and she expressed interest in helping to promote our program and to offer her services. We are proud of Vernett’s success and how she transformed her life by overcoming addiction, maintaining sobriety, and going back to school.
Save the date for a film screening of “The Return” at Grace Church Van Vorst in Jersey City on Tuesday, November 29 at 7:00 p.m., followed by a panel discussion with film producer Ariella Ben-Dov and our clients.
