Tennessee Career Center ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – Three years ago, The Clarksville-Montgomery County Career Center launched the Clarksville Area Re-Entry (C.A.R.E) program at the Tennessee Department of Labor.

“We’re community people who care,” said Angela Egbon, program coordinator of C.A.R.E. “Our goal with C.A.R.E is to help ex-offenders find employment. Some people that come out of jail and can’t find employment will go back to what they know. We can help them find job and give them a sense of who they are as a person. We want them to be successful.” Egbon, who also works as a social worker and employment interviewer for the program, has been with C.A.R.E for almost two years. “We’re sponsored by Senator Joe Pitts,” she said.
