We can help you transition to daily community living.
About this program
The primary goal of the Re-Entry Support Program is to help previously incarcerated individuals successfully transition into community living by empowering them with the skills and resources needed to independently address the difficulties and challenges they will face in day-to-day life.
Who is this for?
This program is for those who have recently been incarcerated and are transitioning back to daily community living.
How does it work?
Our Support Specialists use a home-based model of service delivery to guide individuals through the re-entry process. This model is proven to help overcome barriers to services access, increase individual participation and accountability, and enhance progression and program success.
Sessions with a dedicated Support Specialist occur 2-3 times each week for 6-12 months depending on the needs of the client. Additional support is available 24 hours a day. Transportation is provided if needed to court hearings, job interviews and other important meetings related to the transition process. We work with all systems involved with the individual throughout the program to coordinate efforts and crease effectiviness.
