CEO Tulsa Opens
The Center for Employment Opportunities recently announced the opening of Tulsa, a new program that provides employment services to people returning home from prison to Tulsa County. The program helps formerly incarcerated people gain basic work skills to obtain full-time, private sector jobs.
