So far, we have had four Unlocked meetings for ex-offenders in the community. We have discussed expungement of criminal records, access of training dollars through the One Stop Center, and overall information that ex-offenders need and want to know like credit reports. We even had a financial expert come in to discuss budgeting and managing credit.
Our attendees expressed interest in ways that would help others and came up with the idea to start a clean-up project. We’re hoping to set up a few teams of four to six people for select days in July and August to clean parks and main streets of towns in need of additional clean-up. We’re also hoping to receive donations for items like bags, rubber gloves, and brooms to help our Unlocked team with their project.
We’re looking forward to our next meeting to further discuss this project!
