KRA Supports Businesses’ Ex-offender Hiring Events

Business Services Representatives (BSR) of KRA’s Work Participation, Placement, and Support Services Program—operated for the Baltimore City Department of Social Services—are active contributors, applying their expertise in employer-focused workplace development, to “Turnaround Tuesday” activities and events.

Baltimore - Employ Ex-OffendersCreated by Baltimore United in Leadership Development (BUILD), and attended by local business representatives and other key community stakeholders, Turnaround Tuesdays provide educational activities,  career-preparation workshops, and hiring events for ex-offenders, an initiative that compliments KRA/Baltimore’s own innovative workforce-readiness program.

In an advocacy role, a BSR team member accompanies pre-screened, qualified candidates to hiring events, supporting them to connect effectively with employers—such as Home Depot, looking to fill 750 jobs over the next several months—that share KRA’s commitment to ex-offenders who are dedicated to turning their lives around through gainful employment.
