The Integrated Reentry and Employment Strategies Pilot Project

Four Questions Communities Should Consider When Implementing a Collaborative Approach

This document highlights information gleaned from the Integrated Reentry and Employment Strategies (IRES) Pilot Project underway in Milwaukee County, WI, and Palm Beach County, FL, which focuses on operationalizing a level of cross-systems coordination among corrections, reentry, and workforce development agencies on a scale rarely seen in the field. The four questions featured in the document were derived from the first year of the IRES Pilot Project and can be used to facilitate conversations with key stakeholders about a community’s ability to integrate the efforts of criminal justice and workforce development systems. The questions are also designed to help communities determine what reentry and employment services are available to meet the needs of people returning to communities after incarceration.
