Case Management Models for Pre- and Post-Release Employment Services
- Jail-based AJC staff were reported to drive the connection between jail-based and community-based services through the relationships they develop with participants while they are incarcerated.
- Linking participants to community-based case managers before release, either through informational meetings or through workshops, could help smooth the transition to community-based support after release.
- Regular channels of communication between jail-based and community-based staff could help community-based staff maintain the service plan established in the jail.
