- The Advocate Program: The Advocate Program’s Reentry Services provides ex-offenders preemptive support to restructure their lives and achieve success within pro-social parameters. The Program motivates ex-offenders to identify the dangers of antisocial thoughts and associations to learn that crime can no longer be considered an acceptable lifestyle choice; rather a destructive pattern of behavior. Providing ex-offenders with evidence based reentry services has been shown nationwide to be a cost-effective and valuable option for communities victimized by crime. These services help to reduce the likelihood of offender recidivism, improve public safety, and maximize the potential of offenders using an evidence-based system, including risk and need assessments and other tested tools to design a tailored recovery process for a successful and pro-social reintegration into the community.
