out with those in jail, and continuing to connect with area jails to educate staff on indicators of trafficking.
To help define and navigate this pathway for clients, Call to Freedom’s Reentry Team developed a Reentry Workbook. This resource helps clients process and plan what is needed leading up to and after their release by asking questions like: What are the changes you want to make? What are the steps you plan to take in changing? Who can help you along the way? What could interfere with your plans?
The workbook provides a checklist for everything a client will need to have arranged upon getting out. The workbook creates a space for clients to map out their plan which gives a blueprint to follow, structure, and a source of good ideas. In this, clients have space to plan and are given tips for:
Mental Health and Wellness
Family and Community Support
Hobbies & Leisure
Employment – including resume building and interview skills
These plans then can be used to hold them accountable to the goals they have set for themselves. It provides a list of resources and shows the clients that they have options. Resources include, food, shelter, transportation, health and wellness, and employment assistance.
We are thankful for our Reentry Team and the passion they have in walking alongside clients coming out of incarceration. They have created a helpful resource for those we serve and community partners who work with those incarcerated.
