Employment Rate for Residents Continues to Increase
We are thrilled to report that 87% of the residents, who have been in the program at least 45 days at our men’s facility, are employed fulltime. This follows a trend that began last year when the rate topped 80% for the first time in several years. Virtually all of our residents who reach the 60 day mark in the program are employed fulltime.
Finding and maintaining employment is critical, as our residents learn to become accountable to themselves, their family and the community. We’re grateful to all the employers who hire our residents, and we know from the conversations we’ve had with them that they are grateful to for The Extension, because of the incredible impact we’re having on the community and because we’re a source of committed, sober employees. It’s a win-win-win for our residents, the community and the employers!
