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

Adult Services : Alternative in the Community Programs

Community Solutions' (CSI) Alternative in the Community (AIC) programs are community-based alternatives to incarceration that provide multifaceted intervention services for offenders awaiting trial, or who are on probation or parole. The program uses Motivational Interviewing techniques and a curricula-driven, evidence-based model designed to assess the needs of each client to reduce individual risk factors. Participants work closely with case managers, intervention and employment specialists to develop individual goals and make positive changes in their lives.

Adult Services : Residential Work Release Re-entry Centers

This is a program for male or female state and federal work release clients who live in a congregate setting and are supported as they obtain full-time employment and meet financial, self-sufficiency, and family reunification goals. The program administers assessments, monitors clients' compliance with treatment plan goals and involves clients in direct treatment services that address their criminogenic tendencies. Random breathalyzer or urinalysis, cognitive behavioral groups, and case management assist the client in maintaining stability leading to successful discharge.
