Residential Re-entry Program
The Residential Reentry Program provides transitional housing, job training, support for educational attainment, substance abuse treatment, and health and medical services.
A “strength-based” approach is utilized to support reentry by:
Capitalizing on the individual’s strengths
Providing extensive work experience and job training through LINC, Inc.’s Social Enterprises
Individualized case management services to increase access to substance abuse and mental health services, medical services and education services
With proper support, guidance and social networking, individuals returning from incarceration can contribute great value to the community.
The Marvin E. Roberts Transitional Living Campus offers shelter, food and clothing in a therapeutic environment for up to 18 months for men and women, 25 and older who have been recently released from State and/or Federal prisons or local jails. The average time of residence is 6 to 12 months. The campus can accommodate up to 25 men and 20 women. The complex offers full kitchens and laundry facilities as well as an exercise room and computer labs in a structured environment which is supervised 24 hours a day. It provides a positive social network with intensive case management services for life skill development including family strengthening.
All residents participate in a minimum of 60 days of work experience and job training around the campus, and in two or more of LINC, Inc.’s Social Enterprises, coupled with three days a week of The Courage to Change, cognitive-behavioral, interactive journaling curriculum. Residents receive employability and entrepreneurship training towards overcoming the many barriers to employment of formerly incarcerated persons.
