Effex Management Solutions Receives Employer Community Award From South Carolina Department of Corrections

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - The South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) has awarded Effex Management Solutions with the Employer Community Award for their partnership with the Division of Young Offender Parole & Reentry Service (YOPRS). Effex received their award at a ceremony held May 9th at the SCDC Academy Auditorium with a special guest visit from South Carolina Governor, Nikki Hailey.

In February 2015, Country Fresh Inc., located in South Carolina, partnered with onsite staffing agency, Effex Management Solutions to support YOPRS (a division of the SCDC) by hiring young, non-violent offenders who are in need of their first employment opportunity.

"Both Country Fresh and Effex employees strongly believe in giving back to local communities through volunteer work and contributions. By offering young offenders a second chance despite their history record, we help them re-build their lives, the lives of their families and their financial future," explained Walter Rivera, Program Manager at Effex.

Since the beginning of their partnership, Effex and Country Fresh have helped many young offenders integrate themselves into a labor force to be a better part of the community and assist in preventing crime. Lane Layman, Plant Manager for Country Fresh Inc., and Walter Rivera, Program Manager for Effex, were instrumental in the approval, integration and support of the YOPRS. 

Effex is actively involved with several non-profit organizations including Augie's Quest, Humble Charity Events, American Cancer Society, Andy Roddick Foundation, Autism Society of America, Caring Critters Animal Therapy, Habitat for Humanity, Houston Food Bank, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, People First Society, Special Olympics and local food banks across the nation. In South Carolina, Effex partners with several organizations that act as a bridge for second chance individuals. Some of these include the YOPRS, Turning Point, Sheppard's Gates, Bannum Place, Solutions Recovery Center and many more.
