WRAP mission – To provide financial assistance and case management to individuals involved with the criminal justice system to help them successfully return to the community and avoid future stays in jail.

Program Goals:

    1. To decrease the recidivism rate of offenders through comprehensive evidence-based case management and the coordinated delivery of services.
    2. To increase the number of jail inmates who are screened for mental illness and risk of re-offense; and
    3. To increase service referrals provided to jail inmates through an interview, screening and needs assessment upon initial incarceration, even if the candidate does not require extensive reentry planning.
