PNC Invests in Employment of Former Offenders

We’re honored that the PNC Foundation has awarded us a grant for the third year in a row.

This year, PNC will donate $15,000 to VOAC’s Residential Re-Entry Center which supports individuals returning to the community following incarceration.

The 148-bed Residential Re-Entry Center (RRC) in East Baltimore helps former offenders transition back into their communities and secure employment.

The new PNC grant will help further expand the RRC’s Employment Program which pairs each resident with an employment placement specialist to identify training and work opportunities, as well as assess mental and physical health.
