Welcome to Project FootHold

We understand that you are managing a significant change in your life as you transition into a new career and work life.   We’ve learned that people with your skills and abilities are able to get any job done and our goal is to work with you to prepare you for the opportunities that are ahead after your release.    We work with members to establish a foundation of support and to offer the tools required to launch your next career.  Together, we will explore job search strategies based on your skills, experience and personal goals.
