Join Step Up Savannah, Inc. and hear a nationally recognized expert talk about how his Chicagobased organization works with ex-offenders to help them find and keep jobs, and stay out of jail. The Step Up Savannah’s annual meeting, “Opening Doors for All” will be Oct. 23, 2012 from 7:30 – 9:30 a.m at Savannah Technical College in the Eckburg Auditorium. Steven McCullough, vice president/ special projects for Safer Foundation of Chicago will be speaking.
Over 1,000 men and women returned to Chatham County in 2011 after serving time in state prisons and jail. Employment is the top need for individuals returning to their communities after incarceration yet there are precious few local resources designed to steer these individuals on the path to success.
Celebrate the local business awarded this year’s Workplace Innovator award. Come hear about Step Up’s work to reduce poverty in Savannah, and what individuals and businesses can do to help. Because poverty matters.
