Easterseals-Goodwill contracts with the Idaho Department of Correction to provide pre-release services at the South Boise Women’s Correctional Center (SBWCC) to women preparing to leave prison. Through this program, we offer assistance in helping individuals identify and access local community resources available upon release, including employment, housing, social services, transportation, education, mental health and substance abuse services.
Using Idaho Department of Correction approved curriculum, staff provides classroom instruction within the correctional facility, along with group discussion, and individual support aimed at prepare individuals for release from prison.
Pre-Release Case Management
Our staff works with individuals prior to release to assess their needs and develop re-entry plans focused on success and recovery. Individual assessments help determine the programming, security level and health needs of each individual. Re-entry plans encompass suitable housing, job seeking and job retention practices and address physical, mental health and substance abuse resources where needed.
