Ex-Offender Assistance

 

Our programs begin with performing an intake and case management in a central program office, while outreach coordinator deals with clients at neighborhood-based locations throughout the county. Spread The Purple’s reentry counselors assess participants during the intake process to determine what types of services participants need. After the initial assessment, reentry counselors provide access to the following program components:

 

1. Case Planning
2. Matching Service
3. Housing
4. Job Retention
5. Legal Assistance

 

In addition, to walking a client through the community-based approach, once the client becomes employed by an employer, then he/she will begin the process of applying for the Federal Government to be a Fidelity Bonded by the state that set client resides. Becoming Fidelity Bonded means it is a federal process, which helps job applicants (i.e. ex-offenders), obtain employment, and keep it.

 

The program issues Fidelity Bonds, and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. If you are an ex-offender (Felony, Misdemeanor), or you have a high risk factor, in your background, this bond is given freely, to the employer, as an incentive to hire you. The employer can then hire you, and utilize your skills, without taking a risk, of you being dishonest, while working there.
