(QUAD CITIES) -- The Safer Foundation in the Quad Cities is helping 18 to 24 year-olds with criminal records get jobs.

“Getting a job has been proven time and time again, to reduce the potential for someone going back to the life that they had before they were incarcerated,” says Brian Monroe, the Quad Cities Resource Development Manager.

The Safer Foundation will provide training, education, and employment opportunities through their three year, 4.5 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.

"Get them a future focus. We all win with an increase in public safety. Our economy grows. We’re putting people to work, and feeling good about what they’re doing and...meaningful employment so it’s just a win-win all the way around," says Sue Davison, the Director of the Safer Foundation.

Enrollment for the foundation will start January first.
