This message is prepared specifically for you…
…as an investor in the mission leading Rockland County toward being a fully integrated, accessible community for everyone, you have helped BRIDGES to provide advocacy for people with disabilities throughout 2017 …and together, we are accomplishing the goals!
BRIDGES provides Case Management for the Rockland County Re-Entry Task Force. Individuals on Parole or Probation receive Employment-Focused services including classroom training, employment assistance, and job placement services. Services are provided through a conflict-free Case Conferencing model and include evidence-based group interventions of Thinking For A Change and Ready, Set, Work! As an Independent Living Center, BRIDGES is uniquely suited to augment Re-Entry services with advocacy and access to services that support the housing, education, and employment goals for each person served.
BRIDGES also supports several Alternative to Incarceration (ATI) programs, including one very special program for persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities – IDDATI. This problem-solving approach identifies supportive, community-based services to reduce recidivism for qualified individuals.
Integration Services are provided with the support of the Rockland County District Attorney, and under the supervision of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and New York State Department of Corrections and Community Services (DOCCS).
