Prisoner ReEntry Initiative

ReEntry Services

It’s a fact that finding stable employment is a significant challenge for individuals returning to communities after incarceration. Data suggests that 90 percent of parole violations stem from unemployment or lack of income. Public safety and the community tax base are improved when returning citizens achieve their goal of sustainable work and competitive wages.

Goodwill/Easter Seals Minnesota is well-positioned to implement comprehensive, individualized and evidence-based practices to help returning citizens find and keep a job. Our ReEntry Services are focused on helping people with criminal records overcome barriers to employment, independence and success. We begin with outreach and preparation for prisoners before they are released from our local, county, state and federal facilities.

Several components of our proven ReEntry program are made possible through partnerships that offer cognitive-skills training, referrals for mental health and chemical dependency treatment centers, child support services, legal aid, rehabilitation for those with disabilities, and access to housing assistance resources. Through case management, education, training, employment preparation, mentoring and other support services, this program is responsive to the particular needs and barriers of this population.

ReEntry Services include:
