Ohio State Rep. Alicia Reece today hosted the Second Chance Job Fair in her district at the New Prospect Baptist Church in Cincinnati. The event features employers from manufacturing, non-profits, restaurants, government agencies and construction industries who have immediate job openings. During the kickoff, Rep. Reece announced that she will seek the creation of a community Reentry One Stop in Cincinnati.
“I am pleased to see hundreds today coming to talk with employers. It is important that we establish one central place in the community to assist citizens who are reentering our society,” said Rep. Reece, who brought the idea to Hamilton County.
“Too many Ohioans miss out on job opportunities where they can earn an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work while building upon their skillset. Establishing a one-stop job center for rehabilitated offenders will give hope to communities and strengthen our families through the opportunity and security a job brings.”
