Parole Re-Entry Liaison Project

  • IDOC Parole Services and Healthcare Services collaborated to provide offenders an added support to re-entering the community while on parole; whereas, it is imperative that aftercare and mental health follow up is continued once offenders are released.  The collaboration included placing a Parole Re-entry Liaison in each Parole District.
  • The Parole Office Re-Entry Liaison locates community resources, develops/maintains relationships with said resources including community mental health centers, housing providers, medical providers, etc. while connecting parolees with services to give them an opportunity to be successful on and off of parole to insure a continuum of care upon release from incarceration.
