A ride and a job make second chances possible!
Our Mission: Job Rides helps people get to work. A ride and a steady job make all the difference in peoples' lives! Job Rides relies on community support to make this mission a reality.
Sarah's Second Chance: In
August of 2022 I was released from the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women in
Mitchellville, IA. I was placed in the Fresh Start Facility in Des Moines where
I was introduced to Raine Recruiting and Job Rides. I had little but my prison
sweatsuit and some hygiene items to my name. They not only helped me get my job
at Katecho (where I’ve since been promoted three times and am still employed)
but Job Rides made sure I got there every day. Even arranged a pickup for me at
my apartment when I moved out of the facility on my own. I’ve accomplished a
lot since my release in August. I’ve purchased a new car, am going back to
school to further my career at Katecho as an engineer, and just got approved
for a mortgage to buy my first home.
I’ll never forget the morning rides with all the incredible staff at Job Rides. Thank you so much for this second chance at life! I will definitely be making the most of it! I just wanted you all to know what a big difference you’re making out here. Keep up the amazing work!
Impact of a ride to work: Job Rides operates a fleet of eight vans, driving for three shifts, seven days a week. Riders earned $2.2 million in 2022, our first year!
