The Pre-Release and Reentry Services (PRRS) provides case management for each resident to assist them in addressing their individual reentry issues. Each resident is assessed on their reentry needs and the Case Manager and resident use this information to devise a program contract and reentry plan. The reentry plan then involves setting objectives and strategies to address those areas needing most attention. The case manager monitors progress and recommends progressive privileges as the resident has completed requirements.
The case manager makes referrals to community resources and ensures that the residents have made the necessary contacts with social services and mental health agencies prior to their release. This also includes referrals for housing assistance.
The Case Manager works closely with the resident to identify new goals and behaviors that will assist them in a successful reentry. Case managers meet with the family and discuss the family’s role in confronting future self-destructive behavior. Case Managers review the concept of enabling behavior and discuss how family members can seek out support and help for themselves.
