Fresh Start

Helping to Rehabilitate
The City of Jackson Fresh Start Program assists those with felony convictions to find employment. Fresh Start staff conduct individual and panel interviews, check backgrounds and references, and refer to job readiness training to assure that our participants are ready for employment.

Fresh Start staff follow-up with employers to assure that job placements are working well. Employers are encouraged to take advantage of the many incentives which are provided for those businesses that employ ex-offenders by the State Department of Employment Security.

The Fresh Start Program is temporarily not accepting additional participants.
