HOW the F5 PROJECT 

Supports 
Employing  people in need

We know more than most what is essential —access to safe housing, community, and employment.  Housing keeps people out of jail the first year after release. Employment can keep them out of prison for many years beyond.

This is the cycle of recidivism: When someone has a conviction history, their job application is met
with greater scrutiny and bias. They’re less likely to have employment. Lacking employment, they
can be pushed to commit or recommit offenses out of necessity or stress.

FROM PRISON

We meet our people where they’re at. We go to the jails, prisons & recovery centers to help educate them on the resources they’ll need upon leaving their facility. 

TO F5

Once they are released, they come straight to us. We can offer grace and address immediate, one-time needs or work with people to create a plan.

GAINFULLY EMPLOYED

We can simply share employment resrouces or help people become a part of our employment programs.  Learn more about our second chance employment program below.

How the F5 Project

works with
Second Chance Employers

86% of people at re-arrest did not have a job. 

People who are lacking employment, can be pushed to commit or recommit offenses out of necessity or stress.

The Good News: Employment helps people exiting the jail and prison system become economically stable, and it dramatically reduces their likelihood to return back to the system. As a hiring manager, business leader, or HR leader, this is where you can make an impact and help break the cycle of recidivism.
