Reentry employment programs give assistance to people in desperate need of work opportunities. If someone was recently released from prison, has a criminal record, is a convicted felon, or is an ex-offender, their chances of finding gainful employment doing an honest day’s work are slim.
This is one of the many reasons so many of these people end up resorting to the same tactics that landed them in trouble in the first place. Fortunately, community reentry employment programs in Colorado like The Rock Found are here to help.
By partnering with forward-thinking local businesses and other like-minded programs, members of these programs are given a fresh start to begin changing their lives. Together, as a community, not only are we able to give back, but we are also slowly tackling the recidivism rate both statewide and nationwide,
Job opportunities at The Rock Found consist of mostly light carpentry or woodworking techniques along with traditional food service positions. Our founders – Ritchie and Cheryl Cook – moved to Colorado from Texas and have been able to witness their own dreams turn into reality.
Raised in a Barn is a local rustic furniture store that recovers and repurposes old Colorado barns to make beautiful, authentic barn wood furniture pieces. CSK’s Grill is a Greeley food truck and catering service that offers genuine Texas-style, mesquite smoked BBQ items.
Both businesses are in industries well suited for folks with checkered pasts looking to make a positive change. Furniture building and food service positions also provide our members with the perfect opportunity to learn skilled trade experiences capable of being used for future jobs.
We understand it takes more than just good work opportunities to turn lives around. Click here to read more about the other services and resources we offer our members. Or visit The Rock Found online to get a more thorough understanding of who we are and what we do.
