We at Transition Professionals have one main goal: to reduce recidivism. With our knowledge of community services and the criminal justice system, we provide people recently released from jail or prison with the help that they need to transition back into society. Our services assist them in getting back on their feet by referrals to services, obtaining employment and counseling in order to lead self sustaining lives.
