The Community Partnership Council of Dallas proudly presents its 3rd Annual Felony and/or Misdemeanor-Friendly Community Career Fair
CPC-Dallas is one of 10 such entities across Texas whose mission is to assist the reintegration process of persons who have been "touched" by the criminal justice system.
CPC brings together community, civic and faith-based organizations to form a support network to assist the reentry process of former offenders and in addressing issues that could lead to re-offending. CPC member organizations actively provide mentoring, counseling and instruction in life-skills development, work preparedness and job search assistance.
The Felony and/or Misdemeanor-Friendly Community Career Fair is a collaborative effort to connect on a case-by-case basis, "background friendly” employers within our community with a pool of well-prepared and qualified jobseekers. Successful Felony and/or Misdemeanor-Friendly Community Career Fairs were held in Tarrant County in 2008, 2009 and 2010; followed up by Dallas, with identical career fairs in 2012 and 2014. Through them, more than 1100 qualified jobseekers were put in contact with over 74 employers, whose hiring policies consider felony and/or misdemeanor-background applicants on a "case-by-case" basis. The success and recognition of the Tarrant County events (2009 SHRM Pinnacle Award Recipient) stands as evidence of what can be accomplished when the community rallies around a common goal.
We hope that this event adds "value" to your workforce endeavours.
The Planning Team.
