Reentry Employment Administrators

The Division of Reentry​ Services has 11 Employment Program Administrators who serve most counties in the state. They help​ with:

  • Employment Application Assistance
  • Employment Building Assistance
  • Referral to hiring agencies
  • Employment Clothing or tools
  • Other Employment Related Needs

The process begins with the Probation & Parole Officer making a referral to the Reentry Employment Administrator who will meet with the client at the local Probation & Parole Office.

The Reentry Employment Administrators are also participants of the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE). This is a new tool offered by the Kentucky DOC as part of the Opioid Response Effort. Case Management Services will be provided for those who meet the Opioid Criteria.
