After months of searching for a home that furthers our mission to restore dignity to those most affected by mass incarceration, we found a site in a wonderful location to make this dream come true.
Only a few short weeks after closing on our new home, our first resident checked out his new digs and enjoyed a meal in his new home with old and new friends alike. Joe Sullivan, a client of EJI, will move into Joseph House once it’s furnished. As we prepare a home for Joe and our future guests, we have created a house warming registry for those interested in contributing items for Joseph House
We began our first practicum on carpentry on an unseasonably warm day in Wakulla county just south of Tallahassee. Joseph House has begun to offer vocational programming which we will continue to expand.
Whether it be carpentry, computer science, or another trade, we hope to prepare those at Joseph House for meaningful work. Our vocational programming includes guidance on workplace expectations; vocational skills and interests; opportunities for developing computer skills, resumes, interview skills and networking with future employers; and opportunities to develop career interests and dreams.
