On February 18, 2011, Higbee & Associates invited the Foundation for Continuing Justice to participate in an workshop at the Orange County One Stop Center in Irvine, California to a packed room of individuals. The event was co-sponsored by Orange County One Stop Center, supported by the County of Orange and the Orange County Workforce Investment Board, and Families Forward, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation providing supportive housing programs for families in crisis.
The Foundation for Continuing Justice presented attendees with information about the Criminal Record Clearinghouse. Many of the attendees are in the midst of searching for employment or returning to school and expressed great appreciation for the opportunity to update their criminal record with private background check companies to make themselves more marketable candidates in this very competitive job market. The event was a true success and the Foundation for Continuing justice is looking forward to the next workshop to help those individuals who cannot afford traditional legal assistance.
