The Placement and Transition Section is responsible for increasing the opportunity for successful re-entry of offenders into the community through developing, integrating, and administering transitional programs for the inmate population. This includes policy development, providing technical assistance, oversight, and evaluating and monitoring transitional activities to ensure development of social and rehabilitative programming.

Accomplishments in 1997-98

  • This section developed and implemented Project Re-Connect, an ex-offender job placement program aimed at providing ex-offenders with employment assistance.
  • As part of the Life Skills Grant, staff hired and continued supervising three Community Network Consultants. These positions provide support to the 100-hour transition program through the development of community resources, identification of new partnership opportunities, and expansion of job placement opportunities for ex-offenders.
  • Staff members contracted with DADS Family Project to deliver a pilot program to teach and enable dads to be more competent, involved, and caring fathers.
