Reentry Services

Populations Served: Ex-Offenders

Reentry services are provided to ex-offenders recently released from incarceration. Individuals in this population need jobs in order to reenter society and become self-sufficient members of their communities.

EDSI provides:

  • Skills assessment through our proprietary Skilldex system
  • Job readiness workshops
  • Job search assistance
  • Case management and referrals to agencies for help in removing barriers to employment
  • Job placement
  • Job retention
  • Peer group support to deal with the difficulties of living on their own, adjusting to a new job, and reconnecting with family members

Many ex-offenders are court-ordered to contribute to the financial support of their children. Holding a job is crucial to reuniting with their children and taking part in their lives on a consistent basis.
