Turnaround Houston!

Turnaround Houston! LogoTurnaround Houston! is an initiative launched by Mayor Sylvester Turner in efforts to address the barriers to employment that many Houstonians face. Turnaround Houston offers access to job training, resume writing, tattoo removal, social service agencies, educational institutions, counseling and intervention to help hard to employ Houstonians turn their lives around.

OBO Partnered with the Office of Carolyn Evans-Shabazz in 2020 for the first virtual Turnaround Houston. In spring 2021, OBO worked with the Office of Council Member Edward Pollard to create the City’s second virtual Turnaround Houston Job & Readiness Fair, a 4-day fair, with more than 2,500 jobs available and more than 1,200 participants. In addition, we partnered with over 50 virtual resource booths and employers with wraparound services to assist those with barriers to employment.
