On August 23, 2023, the Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency honored Jarvis Wash with the Reentry Award for his impact in the field. For over 10 years, Jarvis has been connecting returning citizens with vital post-release services like housing, cognitive-behavioral intervention, health care, job placement and training. Jarvis recently joined the Operation New Hope team as the Site Director of our newest program location – READY4WORK Space Coast. We are proud to have him on board and excited for the work we will accomplish together.
Jarvis is the Founder of My Community Cares, Inc. and is the former CEO of The REENTRY Center of Brevard. An impassioned community leader, he is also the Founder and Senior Pastor of The R.E.A.L. Church, Inc., which stands for Reaching, Equipping, Affecting Lives for Christ. Jarvis uses his adverse childhood experiences from growing up in Oakland, California to define his purpose and propel his career to one based on serving and giving back to disadvantaged communities.
Jarvis’ years of dedication to supporting successful reentry was recognized during the 93rd Annual Criminal Justice Training Institute in Orlando, Florida. The Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency’s mission is to foster interagency collaboration of all criminal justice entities, provide relevant training, and encourage community service throughout the State of Florida. FCCD’s history dates back to 1935 through an antecedent organization, the Florida Probation Association. The council was chartered by Secretary of State in 1964 as a non-profit corporation dedicated to promoting high standards for criminal justice agencies and criminal justice personnel.
Keep up the great work Jarvis!
