What Does Home

How can ex-inmates, who have served their time, stay ‘Home for Good’? The short answer is steady employment. Ex-inmates often find that a combination of personal, economic and lifestyle factors determine their success outside of prison. By offering ex-offenders employment, we remove stumbling blocks. Home for Good gives FREE career training and employment.
Successful entrepreneur, David Bullock, witnessed the struggles of recidivism among friends and became determined to make a dent in the ugly statistics. The recidivism rate in Georgia is 50%. In 2019, he created, Home for Good, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Cartersville, Georgia, as an offshoot of his 10-year-old trucking business.
Home for Good’s career training and employment opportunities help ex-inmates achieve economic stability after release, reducing the likelihood that they will return to prison. Primarily, we do this by offering parolees, felons, and current prisoners, FREE commercial drivers’ license (CDL) training, worth thousands of dollars. Students are required to pay for the test to obtain the CDL which usually costs under $100. Upon passing, students are offered a truck driving job with an industry-competitive salary, about $50,000.
Employment provides financial stability, and a productive lifestyle supporting a prison-free future. Contact us to get started.
