About the Community Reintegration Services Program
The Community Reintegration Services Program (CRSP) provides case management support and other crucial services that foster successful reentry among individuals exiting prison who are currently on probation. Services that DCJ assists the client in coordinating include housing assistance, job search assistance, identification acquisition, educational/vocational placement, life skills and social support, and family reintegration. Clients are typically un-employed or under-employed probationers referred by probation officers from the Northern NCC Probation Office (Cherry Lane) and from the New Castle (Hares Corner) Probation Office. In addition to job placement/job search assistance, case managers assist clients with housing referrals and placement, clothing and food assistance, and with rebuilding positive family and social ties. CRSP staff hold Cognitive Behavioral Therapy sessions geared toward clients and work with a number of therapists and psychologists to provide workshops and programming to clients at the probation & parole offices. Additionally, CRSP case managers provide referrals to mental health and substance abuse treatment programs and assist clients with obtaining the necessary medications needed to survive and to thrive. DCJ also accepts juveniles into the CRSP program in addition to adult offenders. CRSP seeks to offer services that will empower the client, improve the client’s stability and independence, reduce the client’s likelihood of reoffending, and improve community safety by reducing recidivism.
