Program Description

The Problem:

Individuals who have been incarcerated often face barriers when attempting to re-enter society, including: lack of stable housing, transportation, and family or community support, inadequate education and job training, unemployment, history of substance abuse or mental health disorders, inadequate linkages to services and healthcare, and learning disabilities, which, when left without attention, lead to high recidivism rates.

Our Solution:

Provide comprehensive case management and referrals to appropriate service providers to address individuals’ needs and increase positive outcomes for their reintegration.

How We Do it:

Suffolk TASC Re-Entry makes the initial contact with individuals incarcerated within New York State Department of Corrections facilities. Assessments are conducted to determine program eligibility and readiness for substance abuse treatment, and individualized treatment plans are implemented to address specific needs, which may include substance abuse services, vocational services, educational services, and more.

After Suffolk TASC Re-Entry provides the initial assessment, individuals participate within the Re-Entry Task Force for an average of 90 days, or until reintegration is achieved (stable housing, employed or enrolled in an educational/vocational training program, drug-free, supported socially, etc.).

How You Can Help:

Suffolk TASC Re-Entry seeks additional funding for additional staff in order to serve more individuals. To support Suffolk TASC Re-Entry with a gift, click here or call (516) 539-0150 x117
