Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Ex-Offenders make up a growing class of disenfranchised citizens. Community Reintegration Consulting (CRC) and Opulence Enterprises (Opulence) partner to implement an effective holistic approach to help ex-felons achieve reintegration success.
"The degree of inequity in sentencing and effects of collateral sanctions makes true reintegration impossible for the poor and people of color," says LeTonya F. Moore, Esq., Chief Counsel, Opulence Enterprises, LLC.
The Opulence and CRC partnership has yielded a program called "Returning Citizen Reintegration Program" that addresses the seven major areas of re-entry: food, shelter, employment, health, finances, legal services, and education. In 2014, Opulence and CRC will host three program sessions for ex-felons geared toward full re-integration. To be eligible for the program, one must meet the following criteria: Formerly incarcerated persons and persons with felony records; commitment to personal transformation for a crime-free life; hardworking; career or entrepreneurial focused; 100% drug free; and available to attend two weekly training sessions for four weeks.
"This program can serve as both a collaborative partner with and an extension of already existing re-entry programs. Our hope is to contribute to and expand the measures of success in metro-Atlanta and beyond," says Kenneth Roye, CRC Founder. Mr. Roye is the on-site coordinator for the program.
Session one applications are being accepted January 1-17, 2014. The career development courses are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30am-12:30pm for four weeks at 2008 Eastview Parkway, Suite 300, Conyers, GA 30013. The entrepreneurship courses are held on Wednesdays from 9:30am-2:30pm for four weeks. The courses begin on Monday, February 3, 2014. The courses are limited to 25 participants.

The Success Clinic features a series of workshops and resources including but not limited to, resume writing, interviewing skills, financial literacy, second chance banking accounts, entrepreneurship, etc. Registrants must complete the free career and skills assessment for matching skills to potential employment opportunities.
