Behind the Door:
Libby Moreton is the Special Assistant for Organizational Development & Quality Assurance. Like other difference-makers in the organization, Libby serves in an unpaid, volunteer capacity. Libby holds an Economics Degree and an MBA from Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky. She subsequently taught business and economics at the University of Kentucky. After 27 years as a Senior Executive with Citigroup, Libby joined Open Door America in 2008 as a Board Member and weekly volunteer engaged in direct client services. Her extensive operational and staff planning/development experience as a CCO at Citibank Dominican Republic and Director of Latin America Service Quality and Citiphone Banking were highly leveraged in the writing of Open Door America's seminal document, The Individual Life Plan (ILP). Through the years, Libby has provided additional leadership and consulting services on a wide range of issues including our mentoring program, our material assistance programs, our job readiness programs, and Board development. When Libby left Baltimore in 2013 and returned to Southern Illinois to attend to family issues, she honored her commitment to stay highly involved in the growth and development of Open Door America.
"As a business professional and person that truly cares about America, I want to be part of an organization that provides a positive and lasting change in the lives of individuals that struggle to survive economically, spiritually, and often materially in this country. I love Open Door America's strategy of linking disadvantaged people with jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors. These are the kinds of jobs that will help revitalize and restore our cities by allowing our fellow citizens to earn 'living wages,' contribute to their communities, and provide for their families."

ELLICOTT CITY, MD, September 18, 2018 -- Open Door America is pleased to announce a preliminary agreement has been reached with the Department of Corrections of Howard County, Maryland to provide case management and mentoring services in support of the county's work-release and reentry programs. During the next 60 days, the parties will pursue a final agreement to create multiple employment-onboarding initiatives throughout Central Maryland beginning as early as December 2018. This developing partnership is a prime example of the type of public-private cooperation that is desperately needed in the United States to assist ex-offenders in rebuilding their lives and employers in finding highly-motivated entry-level workers.
