Criminal Record? No problem.
The Way Out was founded by two justice impacted individuals that believe in the power of utilizing difficult past experiences to create an even better future. That's why they decided to create the most felon-friendly second chance employment platform in America.

Great hiring experience!
The Way Out recommended an applicant with no information that we could use to identify them. We decided to interview this person, interviewed them, and they've occupied that role now for almost a year very successfully.
