Description

Interaction Transition (I/T) is a private non-profit agency housed in Seattle, Washington dedicated to assisting formerly incarcerated individuals in the re-entry process. I/T provides support to individuals as they transition from prison or jail to community life and provide assistance in meeting critical basic needs such as employment and social support. The mission of Interaction Transition is to benefit community safety by facilitating a successful transition by formerly incarcerated individuals, from life in prison to life in the community. I/T helps its participants meet certain critical basic needs, such as employment. The program greatly reduces the risk that participants will resume criminal activity, increases safety within the community, and advances successful reintegration with fellow community members. In addition to providing basic support to those in transition, I/T promotes reconciliation with society, making extensive use of community volunteers, who facilitate group meetings and help participants solve practical problems. The Employment Assistance Program works with employers that support formerly incarcerated individuals return to society. It also provides an opportunity for formerly incarcerated individuals to reestablish their employment history, which is one of the major obstacles and challenges that the previously incarcerated encounter.
