Reliance Works and Appalachian Regional Commission have partnered to expand second chance employment opportunities in eastern Kentucky. Reliance Works employs clients and graduates from our Isaiah House Treatment Center addiction recovery program along with others qualifying for second-chance employment, providing job skills training and employment opportunities to build a new life.
Our goal is to: 1) Create 50 to 60 jobs and provide on-the-job training for 70 to 80 people in recovery from substance use disorder, have limited work experience, criminal backgrounds or poor work histories, and 2) Provide participants with recovery supports including:
- transitional housing,
- peer support,
- telehealth counseling,
- and accountability through drug testing.
