On April 21st, Mike Swiger had the privilege of delivering the final address at the Northeast Ohio Reentry Summit held at the Cleveland Convention Center, receiving a standing ovation. Over 250 potential employers, city and county officials, and administrators from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction participated in this summit.
With 3,000 inmates released every year to Cleveland alone and 2,500 still unemployed after one year, unemployment is a serious issue for ex-convicts. Employment opportunities and strategies to give former inmates a second chance were discussed in detail.
By God’s grace, True Freedom has found great favor with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. We praise the Lord that we are frequently asked to speak at various summits across the state.
Please pray that God would use every opportunity to bring forth fruit for His Kingdom.
