- Ready4Release: delivers pre-release services to individuals in 17 correctional facilities in Florida. Services include consultation with experienced case managers who help create individualized release plans to smooth transition to the community and assistance with housing, transportation, and job training.
- Ready4Work: provides case management, supportive services, job training and job placement assistance to citizens returning to incarceration. Participants are required to remain drug free during their participation in the program, which includes vocational training and financial support throughout the program.
