Transitional Recovery Coaching
Re-entering society and finding employment can be a huge challenge for those who have been previously incarcerated. We provide hands-on coaching and support to assist citizens who are returning to society as they cross the bridge and re-adjust to their communities.
Call me TRC
One of the most important aspects of a person’s reentry and/or recovery; yet, one of the most overlooked, is the availability of positive, pro-social relationships. Returning citizens often find themselves returning to former relationships. Unfortunately, all too often, they are relationships that will increase their vulnerability to re-offend. And while nobody plans to go back to prison, once they are released, in Elkhart County, nearly 4 in10 will do just that; 50.1% will return to IDOC for the commission of a new crime and approximately 49.9% for a technical rule violation.
How it works
A TRC client will meet weekly (for the first three months) with their coaches to work through their recovery/re-entry plan.
Clients determine their recovery and/or reentry plan and TRC coaches will help them stay on course while helping to develop their strengths and potential.
A transitional or recovery coaching relationship can last up to one year after release.
This is a voluntary program, not a level of supervision nor is it mandated through the courts or the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC). A client can end a coaching relationship at any time. However, evidence-based practice reveals that the longer a returning citizen remains in pro-social relationships the greater the chance of never reoffending.
