WORKFORCE & RE-ENTRY PROGRAM
Helen’s Project’s Changes Program provides work, mental health, parenting and job skills for individuals with criminal records hindering their employment chances. East San Antonio is full of individuals seeking to make meaningful contributions to their livelihood and communities but have employ ability challenges because they have just been released from detention or have a criminal background.
The Changes Program is a holistic approach to dealing with incidences and effects of crime on our communities. Through ex-offender re-entry work programs and criminal justice reform advocacy, we provide work opportunities and resources to individuals and communities. The project will offer recruitment services and resources that make job hunting less cumbersome for ex-offenders.
Opening Doors for the Lives of Inmates
Staff and volunteers host events and programs across San Antonio. Sharing hope, education and planning for incarcerated men and women.
Supporting children and Families
Staff and volunteers engage with children on behalf of the incarcerated parent. This year round support is during all major holidays. Also, includes mentoring, camps, clinics and youth group.
Advocating for Justice
Supporting restorative justice programs. Encouraging safer communities, and creating second - chance opportunities.
Together with Casa De Smitty’s and other local businesses and organizations, Helen’s Project’s Changes Program creates employment as well as offer mental health services to individuals actively looking for a second chance. By promoting and affording opportunities to individuals seeking second chances, we enhance safety and economic development of the city of San Antonio.
Economic growth and positive developments to the city of San Antonio is incomplete if marginalized communities are not awarded chances to make meaningful changes. East San Antonio is going through a slow change but that change is incomplete without offering opportunities to ex-offenders who are actively seeking employment and legitimate means to support families but their record hinders the job seeking process. In addition to job opportunities, Helen’s Project engage with mental health professionals to provide much needed mental health services to people working to reintegrate into their communities.
