For the second consecutive year, Volunteers of America Chesapeake has received funding support from the PNC Foundation.

This year, VOAC has received a $10,000 grant to expand the employment program at its Residential Re-Entry Center in Baltimore City. Residential Re-Entry Center

Quick Facts

  • For more than 30 years, the VOAC Residential Re-Entry Center has helped federal ex-offenders successfully transition back into their communities
  • Upwards of 65 percent of residents who complete the program, obtain and maintain employment after they are released
  •  The program assesses, trains, and identifies employment opportunities for each resident

The new grant will allow the Re-Entry Center to work with more ex-offenders individually to determine skill strengths and identify employment opportunities. Learn more about the program.

The PNC foundation actively supports early childhood education, as well as community and economic development. Last year, the foundation awarded the VOAC $10,000 to expand programming at the Pratt House, which provides shelter and supportive services to children and families.
