Transition Professionals operates an on-site jail transition center at the Bergen County Jail to assess and aide individuals for transition into the community. We identify barriers inmates will face upon their release and work with many different partner agencies to secure services before release.
We offer assistance in improving your resume, earning certificates, and finding job opportunities for you.
