Community Corrections Collaborate with 2nd Chance Indy
Jacqueline Coleman, Community Systems Coordinator for Marion County Community Corrections, met with UI’s Jim Cotterill and Scott Whiting this week to find best practices in connecting their clients to job opportunities for their clients living in work release programs, under home detention, or those with ankle monitors. The next step is to quantify the outcomes of those who attend 2nd Chance Indy Job Fairs. We’ll be working with our Employer Partners to get statistical information on numbers of hires, how long these hires are employed, and more.
In a nutshell, Community Corrections oversees and monitors the folks who, rather than spending more time in prison, are given the opportunity to work and live under controlled conditions. Approximately 3,000 people are currently clients of Community Corrections in Marion County. Our thanks to Jacqueline for her efforts!
