Seedco’s Mid-South Regional Office (MSRO) took part in the Tennessee Department of Correction’s Career and Resource Fair in August. The event was held at the Memphis Day Reporting Center, where recently released individuals engage in daily productive activities, including education and job seeking.
Employers and service providers were onsite to help those currently enrolled in the Day Reporting Center program and those on probation or parole to access needed services and connect to available jobs. As a partner to the Department of Corrections, Seedco’s participation in the event meets individuals physically “where they are” and enhances their opportunities to become more self-sufficient. Since this article appeared, Seedco has partnered with the Department of Corrections on other local outreach events.
