Mission Statement

We provide immediate, effective, and comprehensive employment services exclusively to individuals who have recently returned home from incarceration.

Description

Our vision is that anyone with a criminal record who wants to work has the preparation and support needed to find a job and stay connected to the labor force. We believe that everyone, regardless of their past, deserves the chance to shape a stronger future for themselves, their family, and their communities.

History

CEO began as a demonstration project of the Vera Institute of Justice in the 1970s to address employment barriers facing individuals after their release from incarceration. In 1996, CEO became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, providing comprehensive employment services to people newly released from New York State prisons and detention facilities. We now operate in 30 cities across ten states and have made more than 34,000 placements into full-time employment for individuals who were formerly incarcerated.
