What We Do

Bay State Community Services, in collaboration with the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office and the Office of Community Corrections are working together to provide intermediate sanctions for appropriate offenders, to help maximize offender rehabilitation and community reintegration. The Norfolk County Community Corrections Center (NCCCC) offers a community-based intensive supervision site which delivers sanctions and services to promote accountability and increase public safety. Through a combination of job development services, substance use treatment, and life skills and educational classes, our clients are offered tools needed to change negative lifestyles.

 Why Hire Our Clients

There is a direct correlation that exists between gainful, sustained employment and the ability of an ex-offender to remain crime-free. Connecting individuals to employment yields positive benefits for employers, offenders, their families and the community as a whole. Everyone benefits when qualified workers can earn a living, become productive citizens and contribute to society.

Employer Benefits/Incentives
  • Quick response time
  • Qualified, well-matched employees
  • Motivated workers who value gainful employment
  • Employees with a wide range of support services
  • Provided referrals, saving you money on advertising for vacant positions
  • Eligibility for up to a $2,400 one-time tax credit for EACH NEW HIRE
  • Federal Bonding Program to protect employers against theft, forgery, larceny and embezzlement
Assessing Our Clients

All ex-offenders who are referred for employment are prescreened for eligibility and qualifications, but employers have the final say as to whether or not to hire. Employers should also assess convictions prior to offering any of our clients a job. Here are some factors to consider when making an individual determination about a job applicant:

  • Relevance of criminal offense to job being sought (e.g. a bookkeeping position might be a temptation for someone convicted of embezzlement)
  • Was the offense work related
  • Amount of time elapsed since the offense
  • Severity of the offense
  • Ex-offenders attitude regarding the offense
  • Positive supports the ex-offender now has in place
What You Will Receive

Our program offers continued support to both the ex-offender as well as the employer. This continues as long as the client remains in the program, and as long as they are in compliance with program expectations. Assistance provided will include, but is not limited to:

  • Regular monitoring of the ex-offender’s progress
  • Employer assistance with any employment-related concerns
  • Mandatory drug testing at no cost to the employer
  • Supervision level
  • Conditions of supervision (excluding special conditions pertaining to mental health or substance use counseling)
  • Verification of any sanctions that may conflict with designated shifts/assignments
Working Together

Bay State Community Services and the Norfolk County Community Corrections Center are working together to help you find the right employees for your situation. If you are an employer, or know of anyone willing to give an ex-offender a second chance, please contact us. A representative will assist you with any of your workforce needs.
