Justice Jobs still helps people get meaningful, transformative jobs!!!
Updated March 22, 2020
On Marcy 19, Justice Jobs closed our physical office until at least late April due to COVID-19. We are serving current applicants remotely now. We will take new applicants remotely in late March or early April.
Current applicants: Justice Jobs is now working remotely with applicants who were already in the job-hunting phase of our program. Our volunteers can meet with you by phone (for flip phones) or Zoom (for smart phones or computers). If you are already looking for work through Justice Jobs, call at 301-360-3503 or email email@example.com.
New applicants are invited to join our new "Remote Services Program" in late March or early April. If you have already contacted us, we will call you when we have a date. If you have not contacted us yet, please call 301-360-3503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you on the list.
Why we made this decision: The executive director closed the physical office due to the risk to our applicants, volunteers, and the general public. Our meeting rooms are too small for acceptable physical spacing between the expected number of applicants. Nearly all our volunteers are in high risk groups or have family members in such groups. Anyone exposed to the virus at Justice Jobs would become a vector by walking out our doors and back into the community. The executive director, in consultation with our board president, finally decided that keeping our office open would be irresponsible.
54 applicants have gotten jobs through Justice Jobs since we opened in August, 2018. Seven of them were hired in February 2020!
As of last December, 78% of our applicants hired at least six months before were either still employed or had moved up.
Some applicants have been promoted to supervisor or manager. One is a warehouse manager for Aldi's. Another works full-time as an alcoholism-drug abuse counselor. Another is a mortgage loan specialist.
Most people hired through Justice Jobs now work at places like Dairy Maid Dairy, Home Goods, Common Market Coop, Gale Recovery, Serendipity Market, Principled Construction, Frederick County Public Schools, and the Frederick Hilton.
Justice Jobs needs volunteers. To learn how you can help, please contact our volunteer coordinator at email@example.com for more information.
