Reentry Continuum Success in Arizona

The Next Step's effective and efficient model for reentry success starts during federal incarceration and continues through to supervisory and post release custody. While incarcerated, felony offenders are given the opportunity to enroll for FREE services from The Next Step and upon release to their Residential Reentry Center or to U.S. Probation District, these individuals are eligible to receive free employer leads from CoFFE! The Next Step's nationwide Cooperative of Felon-Friendly Employers. 

With special thanks to our participating Reentry Affairs Coordinators within the Federal Bureau of Prisons Western Region, highly motivated Residential Reentry Center staff from Behavioral Systems Southwest Inc, and now U.S. Probation District of Arizona's Chief Mario Moreno and his team of Officers; The Next Step has brought the "reentry continuum" to life for the use of Arizona's federal offender population. 

The CoFFE! database has significantly grown in the few short weeks this continuum has been in effect. With over 1500 employers within CoFFE! who have hired and/or are willing to hire offenders within the state of Arizona, the community stands to benefit.

We are rapidly developing these continuum  models in other states based upon the current participation of RACs enrolling Job Candidates across the country. If you  would like to see successful results like these in your area, please contact us here and get started today!
