One of my longest and most dear pen pals is getting released mid next month, possibly earlier. Out of all the people I write, I can say with 100% certainty we will keep in touch. That being said, I am concerned with her welfare.
I want to try to help connect her with some resources to streamline the process. She may be paroling to an old neighborhood, so I am concerned because the extent of the charges were drug related, so that's a huge trigger for any addict. Also, of course getting back to work ASAP is key.
Can anyone recommend any re-entry assistance in the Central Texas area that would be worth exploring? Does Texas Workforce Commission have any special grants?
I did a bit of googling and found a few hits, but of course there is no way to determine the effectiveness so I am really hoping that someone has or knows of someone that utilized any resources in Texas so I can help prepare her for reintegrating. Thanks in advance.
