​The Adult Re-Entry programs are designed to assist men and women re-entering the community from prison and jail. With both in-custody and out of custody sites, all programs are designed using industry best practices that address criminogenic risks and needs in a safe, warm, inclusive environment. Addressing the risks/needs through the best practices of evidence-based programming, our program design provides a heavy dosage of cognitive behavioral programming, academic support, job readiness, vocational training, and treatment areas. Additionally, we provide supportive services that assist with the stability of one's current reality, such as transitional housing, benefit screening, child support workshops, bus passes, etc. All services are provided on-site in a "one stop shop" format and have proven to be very effective, replicated at several sites in multiple counties. Our knowledgeable case management staff pride themselves on their commitment 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, and we work collaboratively with the client, their family, and their supervising agent 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 our recidivism outcomes.​
