Work Release - Renewal Inc

Work Release

We know that successful reintegration takes more than a new set of tools. It takes real practice using those tools to develop the long-term habits necessary to build a new, sustainable future. That’s why Renewal Inc.’s Work Release Program is designed to provide meaningful, practical experience, and why it has been recognized throughout the industry as a model for managing this critical element of the transition process.

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.

At Renewal, completing the program is only part of the goal. We have been using our own fully-computerized resident management system since the mid-1990s, years before such innovation was commonplace. It not only monitors participants’ movements, but actively tracks their progress. Our aim is to ensure that our Work Release program provides valuable and productive experience for participants to take with them through reintegration and beyond.

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.
