Former prison inmates continue to get more support and assistance through community partners working with the Memphis and Shelby County Office of Re-Entry
Representatives from Second Presbyterian Church and National Guard Products, Inc., met recently with Reentry Director Phyllis Fickling.
National Guard Products is a Memphis company that manufactures thresholds, gasketing, finger guards, lite kits, louvers, glass door edges and astragals. Some of the Whitehaven company's workers are former inmates who sever in various roles at the manufacturing facility.
Second Presbyterian Church has a career assistance program and assists former offenders with job resources in the Shelby County area.
"New partners will strengthen our ability to help more inmates and their families. We're grateful to have the additional resources to call on," said Ms. Fickling.
