SELF! REENTRY SERVICES
BUILDING COMMUNITY. BREAKING BARRIERS. EMPOWERING WOMEN.
We coach re-entering women in achieving and maintaining a safe and productive lifestyle, empowering them to contribute to their communities and flourish as they continue to become their true SELF!
We'll be by your side every step of the way! Our life coaches meet with each client monthly, and are also available as needed. Coaches maintain low caseloads, and our supervision and services are available on weekdays, evenings and weekends to meet the needs of our clients.
Individualized Case Management
All SELF! program participants are assigned a life coach who works with each participant to identify their individual priorities and requirements. The result is a comprehensive, personalized plan detailing what needs to be done, who needs to be involved, and the necessary time needed for completion. Special attention is paid to issues related to family, education, employment, counseling, housing, and other social networks.
Certified Peer Support Specialists
SELF! Certified Peer Support Specialists are the backbone of our program. Our specialists provide one-on-one support that only someone who has experienced similar struggles can give. This means our clients get the compassion, understanding and assistance they most need.
Women have very unique struggles that must be addressed many times without notice. SELF! Along with a collective of local non-profits provides immediate intervention to women in crisis. This crisis can be anything from a fire, eviction, or fleeing a domestic abusive relationship. Being able to provide immediate shelter, clothing, and food allows these women to be safe and plan their next course of action.
Many clients reentering society have stipulations from the parole board and navigating the process and procedures can be difficult. SELF! provides the resources needed for our clients to be able to comply with the terms of their parole, helping them successfully meet all their legal obligations and reduce recidivism.
