MOORE, Okla. –  The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO), a national re-entry program that offers comprehensive employment services exclusively for people with criminal records, celebrated the opening of its new Oklahoma City office during an event Thursday, Jan. 9 at Moore City Hall.

“I am thrilled CEO was able to open an office in Oklahoma City,” said Bob Ross, president and CEO of Inasmuch Foundation and member of CEO’s Oklahoma advisory committee. “CEO is a great example of a public-private partnership working to provide immediate employment services to men and women that can help transform their lives.”

CEO’s model is based on a highly structured program of life skill education, short-term paid transitional employment, full-time job placement and post-placement services. The organization opened an office in Tulsa in 2011.

The new office, which serves the Oklahoma City metro area, launched in August of 2013.

To date, CEO has provided services to more than 80 individuals returning home from prison and has helped the city of Moore recover from the spring storms.
