How Does the JOBS Program Work? 

The Probation Division oversees the program. Staff will provide resumes to employers when a new opportunity opens. Probation staff are available to consult with the employer during and after the selection process. 

Probation Staff will: 

  • Help match qualified candidates to a job 
  • Connect employers with probation clients 
  • Create job fairs and interviews 
  • Reach out to business of every size and employment agencies 
  • Provide job readiness training when appropriate

Hire Our Clients with Confidence 

The probation division also provides monitoring and supervision of the employee. This could include ongoing drug screening. In addition, all employees hired through JOBS are eligible for the federal bonding program.

JOBS Program Eligibility 

Potential participants must: 

  • Be under active probation supervision in recovery court, Intensive Supervision Program, or general community supervision. 
  • Cooperate with probation supervision. 
  • Submit to drug screening (for all Recovery Court and select probation clients).
