Overview of Program

Preparing For Release is designed for inmates returning to a family type environment.

Preparing For Release occurs at the institution within 6 months of release.

Preparing For Release consists of four 4-hour sessions.  Session 1 and Session 3 are with the inmate only, while Session 2 and Session 4 are with inmate and a family member

Preparing For Release provides healthy communication techniques and boundaries for families to safely discuss their concerns and expectations prior to release.

At the conclusion of Preparing For Release, each participating family will have developed a "Family Re-entry Agreement" that identifies and prioritizes the entire family's needs prior to the inmate returning home.

At the current time Preparing For Release is offered at institutions within the Washington State Department of Corrections.
