Windows to Work

Windows to work (W2W) utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Intervention curriculum to help justice involved individuals address their criminogenic needs that can lead to recidivism. The program’s goals are to help individuals improve social interactions, to increase employment opportunities and improve job retention, and to reduce recidivism after release from incarceration.

W2W activities begin 3 to 12 months prior to release from incarceration and continue for approximately one year after release from prison. In addition to providing Cognitive Behavioral Intervention services, the 12 week program curriculum reviews general work skills and expectations, identifies community resources, and provides assistance with the job seeking process including the creation of resumes and cover letters as well as job application assistance. Once released from prison, the individual works one on one with W2W staff to conduct job seeking and job placement activities, receives referrals and assistance with connecting to community resources, and receives seamless assistance attaching to a wide range of regional training programs provided through FoodShare Employment and Training, WIOA, Madison College and other community based organizations.

The program provides financial assistance to assist individuals with their transition back into our local communities. Financial assistance is provided on a case-by-case basis and can be utilized for work-related clothing, transportation, housing and education.
