Crime Prevention Project

CRIME PREVENTION PROJECT

CRAM’s services are provided through the Multi-Service Programs under the Crime Prevention Project. The Crime Prevention Project is a tri-fold initiative: build a strong and safer community, empower offenders to be self-sufficient, and lessen the burden of the community. The Crime Prevention Project is new, innovative and unique, in that it serves as a “one-stop” service that provides individualized services to the clients, beginning in correctional institutions/facilities of confinement and continuing throughout an offender's transitionand stabilization in the community.   The beneficiaries of the services are prisoners, ex-offenders and the community.

The Crime Prevention Project is an integrated approach through the Multi-Service Programs (MSP) as a positive therapeutic alliance, which is seen as critical in helping the ex-offender become gainfully employed, maintain stable housing, refrain from criminal activities and stay involved in all support programs needed to live a successful life in the community.  Services are provided through the 3-Phases.

Phase I - . This Phase is designed to assess and prepare the offender to re-enter society through the S.A.V.E. Project services that includes an IRP (Individualized Re-entry Plan) for each participant, to assess his/her need for assistance for transitioning back into society. This program is offered at the State Correctional Institutions at Camp Hill & Muncy and available for prisoners of Dauphin and Cumberland County Prisons.

Phase II - Community Based. This Phaseis designed to assess and work with the offender prior to and immediately following release from correctional institutions. Services provided in this phase include, as appropriate: education, monitoring, mentoring, life skills training, job skills development, substance abuse mentoring, and referrals to other social service and/or human service agencies. This phase provides the ex-offender with services while they are in a half-way-back status in the community. An IRP is developed to assess the need for assistance while in this status. Specific programs included are: Housing Assistance (for an approved home plan), Computer Literacy Class, Employment Assistant Project, Educational/Vocational goals, Project M.E.N.T.O.R., Ex-offender Community Service Project, Substance Abuse Recovery/Reentry Services and Referrals to other social service and/or human service agencies.

Phase III - (Implemented upon release on parole supervision) – Ongoing Support. This Phase is designed with programs that will connect offenders (who have left the supervision of the justice system) with a network of social service agencies and community-based organizations, to provide ongoing services and mentoring relationships. Their IRP is re-assessed for ongoing assistance. The following available services will continue as long as there is a need and/or as long as the client requests the support: Housing Assistance (to maintain stable and/or permanent housing), Employment maintenance, Educational/Vocational goals, Project M.E.N.T.O.R., Substance Abuse Recovery/Reentry Services, referrals to other social service and/or human service agencies, Budgeting classes and the Ex-offender Community Service Project.
