New Start Program - Reentry Assistance

The New Start Program's goal is to assist local residents in obtaining employment and professional license by addressing their criminal history and record. Applicants are often unfairly or unjustly denied a job or professional license as a result of prior, and often times old, criminal record. We hope to assist clients in breaking through this barrier by obtaining Certificates of Relief from Disability & Certificates of Good Conduct. We will also be assisting clients in administratively correcting errors on their RAP sheets and other types of assistance relating to a client finding and keeping employment. For more information, please contact newstart@onvlp.org or (315) 579-0177. Space is limited for this program and not all applicants will qualify so if you are interested and feel this program would be a benefit, please do not wait to contact us.
