Offender Reentry Initiative: Gulfstream Goodwill Industries Inc. (GGI)
The goal of this project is to replicate the activities and success of an existing collaborative effort between three coastal Palm Beach County Weed & Seed sites and GGI by providing services for successful community reintegration, the reduction of recidivism rates and employment.
Palm Beach County in collaboration with the Florida Department of Corrections and community-based reentry partners facilitate the successful reintegration of ex-offenders returning to Palm Beach County. The Regional and State Transitional Offender Reentry (RESTORE) Initiative, established in 2011 provides inmates with pre and post release services to assist in their transition back into the community. This program receives referrals directly from the Sago Palm Reentry Prison and can offer residential and community based case management services, family reunification, employment services, substance abuse counseling and peer support groups.
