Providing Hope to Anyone Feeling Overlooked

Blue Jacket, Inc. was created in 2003 to address critical needs for people wanting to earn a second chance at employment, with doors opened in 2005. Today, our mission is to provide training and opportunities to anyone with a barrier who is striving to earn gainful employment.

I personally feel everyone deserves a second chance in life. I love seeing how some of these people's entire lives are turned around by someone believing in them and giving them a job. It’s a feeling you can’t describe knowing you played a small part in their new journey.
