We often share with our clients that successful re-entry begins the first day of their incarceration. Re-entry job readiness is just part of the plan. While access varies facility to facility, we encourage our clients to take advantage of any and every educational and training opportunity. That can look like finishing a GED program or getting an electrical apprentice certificate. The goal is increasing financial opportunities after incarceration.
Our Change Coaches also spend much of the transition year, the year before a client release, preparing women for what the job market now looks like.
A big thanks to our Change Coach, Gayle Eason, for sharing what the last year looked like for our latest client release.
