Martin’s Place set to provide job training in Jersey City

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Acting Gov. Kim Guadagno recently oversaw the opening of Martin’s Place Jersey City Community Resource Center, a place designed to help ex-offenders and the unemployed to receive help, job training and employment. It is managed by the Jersey City Employment & Training Program.

“We know the power of second chances, but we also know that they can be impossible without services that prepare ex-offenders for their new lives,” Guadagno said. “That’s what the Community Resource Center offers to those who have the desire to succeed: employment training and placement, addiction and mental health treatment, and resources to ensure that participants have every chance to succeed. Thanks to the Center, we face down the harsh reality of recidivism with hope.”

Serving all of Hudson County, Martin’s Place CRC offers resources to improve the lives of participants, assist their reintegration into the community and enhance public safety. The CRC is being launched in partnership with the New Jersey State Parole Board, the Hudson County Department of Corrections, the New Jersey Building Trades Council, Jersey City Employment and Training Program (JCETP), and Integrity House.
