Welcome to Faith Based Transition Services.

Our mission is to be a supportive agent working to eliminate the obstacles and barriers that prevent those most at-risk from experiencing stability thru sustainable employment - namely the disadvantaged, underparented, and underprivileged populations.

Why do I need FBTS in my Circle, in my Corner, on my Side?    Here are a few reasons:

FOR LIFE SKILLS/CASE MGT: I'm "failing" and I can't get up. I'm exhausted from all the running around these agencies are putting me thru. I have many immediate needs, but I am running into obstacles. HELP!

FELONY RECORD: I have a "Felony Record" which blocks me from getting a job for 10 years. My past is behind me, but how do we get the employer to understand this fact. I need help with expungement of my criminal record. Then I need a permanent JOB NOW so I can continue to stay on the right path to stability and success. HELP!

IMMEDIATE NEEDS: Every hour is spent hustling to keep my head above water. If I take a month to develop "JOB READINESS" skills without earning any money, I will be homeless. HELP!

UNDER-PARENTING: I know I'm missing basic soft skills that keep blocking me from getting my dream job - speaking well, a positive attitude, values, prioritizing, learning socially appropriate behaviors, what is professionalism?, having positive interactions with my family and the people I will eventually work around. HELP!

CAREER GROOMING: I hate the jobs that I currently qualify for. I wish I had a partner to help me carve out the career I really want, while maintaining my basic needs. HELP!

JOB CONNECTIONS: I have a pattern of getting only temp jobs, and not being able to keep good permanent jobs. Please help me understand how to break this pattern and help me link to a kind of job that is PERMANENT, is respectful to me, and cares about my overall welfare?

LEGAL ADVOCACY: I encounter many systems that I feel are unjustly making me plea bargain my life away, or that unjustly take money from me, and because of these extra expenses I can't be satisfied with my existing job to cover the costs of my basic needs. (landlords, no paid time off, child support system...) HELP!

I AM AN EMPLOYER WHO CAN ASSIST FBTS PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS:    I just want to be part of the solution to America's re-entry problem, and Long-Term Assistance issues.

I WANT TO VOLUNTEER or DONATE to the FBTS mission: I share the FBTS vision and passion and want to join forces. I want to participate in any way that I can, or contribute to the cause. How can I help?
