The Salvation Army Correctional Services contracts with multiple Florida counties to provide supervision for misdemeanor offenders sentenced to probation in County Court as well as those referred by the Federal Bureau of Prisons in need of reentry programs.
Local needs are assessed in developing these programs, and The Salvation Army Correctional Services works with the personnel of each county to determine what services are appropriate for their area. While all programs may not be provided in each county, these services are provided throughout Florida:
· Batterers Intervention
· Collection and Distribution of Fines, Court Costs, and Restitution
· Community Service Placement
· Drug and Alcohol Screening
· Pre-Trial Intervention
· Victim Impact Panels
· Vehicle Immobilization
· Electronic Monitoring
· Residential Reentry
· Residential Treatment
· Transitional Housing
In addition to services that are needed to complete probation requirements, The Salvation Army offers courses to help clients develop the skills and knowledge needed to get back on their feet. These courses include behavior modification, anger management, employment assistance, and financial literacy.
The Salvation Army also assists with obtaining needed social services in the community. Each location has recourse either provided by The Salvation Army or other agencies to obtain short-term housing, food vouchers, rent subsidies, utility assistance, clothing, furniture, prescriptions and transportation.
