Adult Re-Entry Programs

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Adult Re-Entry programs are designed to assist those who are re-entering the community from prison and jail. With both in-custody and out-of-custody sites, the programs are designed using industry best practices that address criminogenic needs and client risk levels in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment.

The SCOE programs are designed to provide a heavy dose of cognitive–behavioral programming, academic support, job readiness, vocational training, and treatment areas through the best practices of evidence-based programming. Additionally, the programs provide supportive services that assist with the stability of one’s current reality, (such as transitional housing, benefits screening, child support workshops, bus passes, etc.). All services are provided on-site in a “one-stop-shop” format. The knowledgeable case management staff is committed to improving outcomes for clients and their families.

Services are available to clients and their families during the often overwhelming transition from custody to community. Clients are referred to the program by their supervising agency (parole, probation, sheriff), and we work collaboratively with the client, their family, and their supervising officer to ensure long-term success. It is the client’s long-term success that, over time, has the most impact on the stability of the person, the family, and ultimately the community. As a result, the impact on public safety is ultimately demonstrated by recidivism outcomes.
