Full Services Provided: Workforce, Inc is a 501 (c) (3) organization, with a dual mission: 1) to help formerly incarcerated individuals make a successful transition back into civil society by providing paid employment and training in combination with a host of social services, and 2) to keep as much electronic waste as possible out of Indiana’s landfills. We have been successfully fulfilling our mission for the last four years. Since inception in 2005, we have employed over 215 formally incarcerated individuals and have processed over 5 million pounds of electronic waste. Of the 215 individuals who have participated in our program, we have experienced a recidivism rate of less than 15%, which is a dramatic improvement over the city’s norm, which is 74%. Our program is proving that immediate employment post release can significantly reduce re-arrests and prevent new crimes. The WFI program is structured around two mantras. “Remaking our Resources” and “Work, Responsibility and Reward.” Literally, we take discarded electronic equipment, dismantle it, and then sell it on to metal and plastic processors who re-make the materials into new products. Then, figuratively, we provide formerly incarcerated individuals, who face significant employment barriers, with an opportunity to re-make their lives. We provide these individuals with paid employment and an enriched service environment. During paid employment related activities, WFI offers contextual learning in handling of small tools, shipping, receiving, manufacturing duties, operation of small tools, operation of heavy equipment (including certification) for forklift driving and operation of an industrial baler. In addition to hard skills offered through paid employment, WFI provides emphasis on soft skills development for the participants, who, disproportionately, have little or no reportable work history. Operationally, soft skills include items such as punctuality, respect, attitude, and following instructions. The enriched service environment of WFI offers access to a host of social services such as assistance with driver license re-instatement, housing, health insurance, help mitigating court issues, and job coaching. Our second mantra, “Work, Responsibility and Reward,” illustrates our commitment to re-connect formerly incarcerated individuals to the world of work. We believe that employment is the foundation for successful re-entry. A primary initiative of the human services side of WFI is in assisting participants who are noncustodial fathers with reunification with their children, including assistance with child support modifications through the court, child visitations, and family interactions. The mantra of “work, responsibility, reward” is manifested by showing program participants that if they come to work, and act responsibility, especially with the obligations to their children such as paying child support, that WFI will award them enhanced supports such as described above.
