Dismas Charities Charleston To Partner With Jobs And Hope

Tiffany Tyson and Kevin Jackson, Transition Agents for Jobs and Hope West Virginia, met with Charleston administrators recently to help form a partnership with Dismas Charities to help our residents. Jobs and Hope, which was formed to help newly-released state and federal inmates make a successful re-entry into society, assists with transportation to job interviews, resume writing, birth certificates, and identification. They also assist with obtaining needed work shoes, tools, and uniforms necessary on the job. “The state of West Virginia has taken a very proactive approach to providing as much assistance as possible to those returning to our communities from incarceration,” said Director Jim Sands.
