MOORE, Okla. – A program to help Oklahomans with criminal records remake their lives by finding jobs is taking a big step forward.

“The Center for Employment Opportunities” celebrated a grand opening of its new office in Moore on Thursday.

The national re-entry program offers comprehensive employment services for former prisoners who are trying to transition back into society.

The program offers life skills education, short-term paid work and full-time job placement services.

Even after its clients get jobs, the program provides a year of support and training.

Right now, many of their recruits gain on-the-job skills by working to help businesses and homeowners rebuild after the May storms.
