Pioneer Human Services

I saw this article on October 10th about Pioneer Human Services being awarded $1.17 million grant from the US Department of Labor to help expand their job training program.

Pioneer Human Services was founded in 1963 as a halfway house. Fifty years later, it operates 10 of the 16 state’s work-release programs through contracts with the state Department of Corrections.

I had the privilege of interviewing many of the founding board members of Pioneer in 2009 to create a living history of the founding and early days of Pioneer.  It’s an amazing organization.  If you have an hour or so to learn their story you can watch the series here.

These videos bring the history of this remarkable agency to life through stories told by its founding board members and honorary governors.

This story was distributed internally on DVD and has been posted online for additional public exposure.

Want to see their incredible story?  Just  click on the image below.
