Re-Entry, otherwise known as Jail Transition, assists youth, ages 17-20, who currently reside in the Albany County Jail through assessment, crisis intervention, referral for critical service needs and post release planning. The core of this program features a 12 session series of workshops that focus on a new way of thinking, problem solving and daily living skills, job readiness, and special presentations from key areas of the community.
Our Cognitive Behavior Intervention (CBI) – Thinking for a Change Program, at Albany County Correctional Facility, assists adults 18-30. This curriculum addresses problem solving, cognitive self change and social skills.
Individual counseling is also provided as part of the post release plan. Intensive support, guidance, encouragement and advocacy from staff represent a vital piece for our participants as they re-enter the community to begin a new chapter of their lives – as stronger, more empowered, responsible individuals.
“Studies have shown that inmate participation in education, vocational and job training, prison work skills development, drug abuse, mental health and other treatment programs, all reduce recidivism, significantly.”
