New Client Video Story: Once a Head Cook in Federal Prison, Now a Cook at a Local Café

One week after completing the New Jersey Reentry Corporation‘s program, our client, Candido, landed a job as a cook at the Light Rail Cafe in Jersey City. He had a tremendous amount of experience; he had worked as a head cook in federal prison for more than 20 years, where he also supervised 20 additional employees. Originally given a release date of 2035, Candido was among more than 200 individuals who were granted clemency by President Barack Obama in 2016. Video by Stefanie Campolo
