Job Placements

Employment means everything after incarceration, and we are peoples’ best first job after prison.

Launched in 2013, Project Return Opportunities for Employment (PROe) bridges the chasm between incarceration and regular employment. PROe functions as a temporary staffing service, in which Project Return meets the workforce needs of our employment partners, while our transitional employees earn, learn, and succeed.

All About PROe

Project Return’s participants are people who have returned to the community after incarceration and want to work. For five years, Project Return has been helping these people find meaningful employment by connecting them with regional employers, fulfilling their short-term labor needs.


Project Return supports the successful return to work of men and women after incarceration. In connecting them to meaningful employment, Project Return meets your workforce needs in one or both of the following ways:


We screen job seekers based on their qualifications and your hiring needs, then refer them to you. Your company evaluates our referrals based on merit, and hires on a case-by-case basis.


We evaluate, screen, and hire participants based on your business needs. We provide job coaching, transportation, and support services. We invoice a flat rate per labor-hour, with no fee for direct hire.
