Jackson County Adult Parole and Probation provides an onsite Resource Center that offers wrap-around services to assist Justice Involved Individuals in their personal growth, success, and goals to become better future neighbors.
Built on the model of Integrated Social Services, the Resource Center helps individuals looking to stabilize after periods of instability or incarceration. The goal of the Center is to assist each client from point A to point B with key local organizations on-hand who are committed to the individual’s growth and rehabilitation.
When clients come to JCCJ for PreTrial Supervision or to check-in with their probation officer, the Resource Center staff can assist them with reinstating their Oregon Health Plan benefits, start the process of obtaining an Oregon ID and/or their Social Security Card, employment search, housing, and food assistance, all in one visit.
Nathan Beard Job Development provides second chance employment services by working with 200 local employers who offer positions to Justice Involved Individuals. He assists them with typing resumes, cover letters, and job search. Nathan updates a weekly job board with local employers who are currently hiring. Additionally, he trains the Resource Center staff to enhance their collaborative efforts to afford the clients' success.
Max's Mission, another program rooted in Southern Oregon, is part of the Resource Center. Two days a week, David & Julia Pinsky provide education and distribution of naloxone kits, an overdose reversal nasal spray.
This upcoming year will see on-site partnerships with local housing assistance agency ACCESS, healthcare provider La Clinica del Valle, as well as the Addictions Recovery Center.
