What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Employment Services

Work is critical to reintegration. Our employment program begins before release with intake, assessment, case management, work readiness training, job training that results in certification and education. Clients prepare release plans, receive counseling that continues in the community. Collaborative partners include employers, technical schools, colleges, on the job training providers, and a host of social and health services. The goal is beginning a career path that offers opportunity for long-term growth. The Work Place, a One Stop Career Center offers ongoing support as well. Mentoring is offered by community volunteers and Span alumni that helps to sustain employment and support healthy reintegration. Clients are eligible to stay involved in Span services including substance abuse counseling, life skills education, relapse prevention, and ongoing reintegration counseling for as long as they wish.

Population(s) Served

Housing is a key component of successful reintegration. Nearly 68% of people enrolling in Span before release report they will be homeless or in unstable housing once they get out of prison. Span's housing services include: (1) Rental Assistance on a limited basis for up to 90 days in sober living environments; (2) Housing Search to assist with application for subsidized housing, conducting classes and groups in housing search, support with the complexity of housing search, and accessing other rental assistance resources; and (3) Accompaniment to housing authority hearings, teaching tenancy skills, and coordinating compliance with the housing search process from beginning to end. All housing services are provided with the requirement that clients are also participating in our rehabilitative services, substance abuse treatment if needed, and are working on sustainable forms of income or employment.

Population(s) Served

70% of MA prisoners had substance abuse and/or mental health issues at the root of the behavior that ended in a prison cell. Span offers substance abuse and mental health services directly addressing reintegration: assessment, service planning, individual and group counseling, cognitive and behavioral therapy, recovery coaching, and peer support. Case managers and counselors assist clients to plan for and obtain treatment in the community pre-and post release. Overdose prevention education is also offered. Some prisoners stay "clean" in prison, and prison based recovery is a viable start to maintaining recovery in the community. Some clients use drugs and some become addicted for the first time in prison, with little or no recovery experience in the street. Relapse risk is high. we use a relapse prevention focus in early release, and offer a wide variety of groups: Dual Recovery Therapy, Thinking to Change, and Living in Balance among others. Supports are ongoing.

Population(s) Served

Span's health and HIV services provide all clients with health information and strategies to reduce risk and increase safety regarding hepatitis, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, critical just after release as it is a time of high risk. Health prevention workshops are part of all new clients' orientation process. Staff assists clients to ontain and use health insurance, teach health care system navigation to help clients maintain health services. For many clients emergency room services were their only source of health care so education in finding primary and specialized care providers and susyaining involvement is critical. We support clients in their work to understand and invest in their health and well being in direct ways and address lapses quickly. Span's waiting areas, offices, and bathrooms offer condoms, educational materials, and resources for health and wellness care. Overdose prevention and HIV Counseling and Testing is provided as well.
