The Delaware Hub, a partnership with the DOJ, USAO, and Federal Probation and Parole, looks to offer job and resources fairs up and down the state of Delaware. These job & resource fairs are for everyone, and are felon friendly. We attempt to centralize the fairs in areas in the community that are most in need of the resources and employment opportunities. Typically, without COVID the Hub would be held in community centers and churches in the most vulnerable neighborhoods.  At this moment, we are hosting them virtually.
