Beginning the day an individual commits to participating in Renewal’s Work Release Program, our professional staff takes an active role in ensuring he or she has a rewarding employment experience and is set up for success. Each participant is assigned a Case Manager who will work with him or her on a one-on-one basis throughout the program, and Employment and Outreach facilitators are available to help find and obtain job opportunities. As always, work release participants also have access to the full breadth of Renewal’s resources to address any concerns they may have related to their mental health or issues with drugs or alcohol, or simply to strengthen important social skills.
Renewal offers case management for Federal, State and County work release programs.
To be eligible, an individual must be referred through the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Probation Office, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, the Pennsylvania Department of Parole or the Allegheny County Jail.
