Why Small Businesses Matter in Bridgeport: Project Pardon

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT Project Pardon!

Three questions with Lisa Gerald, Executive Director of Project Pardon.

Why did you start your business?

Project Pardon, LLC., was the catalyst for the retirement of Lisa Crespo-Gerald’s position as a Chief Probation Officer after an excess of twenty years of state service. The purpose of this company is to assist individuals with convictions in the State of Connecticut to obtain a Criminal Record Absolute Pardon.

Hence, breaking barriers associated with employment, housing, personal and professional growth, and opportunity without discrimination associated with a criminal record for which they have long completed the legal sentence obligations as ordered by the court.

Have you "reimagined" your small business?
