Knoxville Community Resource Center Holding Career & Resource Fair

In an effort to assist the offender population in Knoxville and surrounding communities, the Knoxville Day Reporting and Community Resource Center (DRC/CRC) will be holding a Career & Resource Fair. Employers and representatives from agencies around Knoxville and East Tennessee, including the American Job Center, Express Employment, Goodwill Industries, University of Tennessee’s, Partnership for Ongoing Parental Support (TPOPS) and the Tennessee College of Technology, will be present to help individuals with a criminal record search for and obtain gainful employment.

“Finding and securing a job is an incredible hurdle offenders and those with criminal records face,” says Sherry Crouse, Director of the Knoxville DRC/CRC. “Without stable employment, they are at risk of returning to criminal activity. By helping them obtain stable employment, we’re helping them become productive citizens.”

Offenders currently serving on probation or parole, as well as ex-felons, are encouraged to attend the event.
