Safer Communities

How we’re contributing to public safety.

PAR-Recycle Works believes that one of the best crime deterrents is a job. Through PAR-Recycle Work’s program, returning citizens learn life skills and professional training that assist them in returning to the full-time workforce. By having and maintaining a steady job and a source of income, program participants are able to transition back into society at a much higher rate of success. The participants go from costing society to contributing to society through tax revenues and productive output.

By keeping these workers on a path to employment and self-sufficiency, the chance of them committing future crimes is significantly decreased, thereby reducing crime and keeping our communities safer.

               “It’s time to break the cycle. The results are in – work reduces recidivism.
