What we do

Educate, inform, connect and assist

Jails to Jobs, a Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is an organization that gives previously incarcerated and soon-to–be-released men and women the tools they need to find employment. It educates and informs this population through workshops in jails and prisons in Northern California, the information included on its website and through its book, “Jails to Jobs: Seven Steps to Becoming Employed.” The organization also maintains a searchable directory of free and low-cost tattoo removal programs across the U.S. that now has more than 300 programs in 42 states. In answer to a need for more programs, Jails to Jobs has recently published Tattoo Removal: Establishing a Free or Low-Cost Community-Based Program: A How-to Guide, as part of its efforts to help to create and establish more programs.
