Shields for Families Back on Track program provides support services to individuals returning to the community after incarceration. Their mission is to offer an integrated and holistic strategy with evidence based solutions to reduce recidivism. They serve formerly incarcerated individuals who are part of the California Department of Justice’s Back on Track – Los Angeles Project. The project offers support services, job development training, educational support, case management and referral services. Back on Track aims to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and help individuals permanently return to the community. Their target population includes individuals pre- and post-release at the Los Angeles County jail, as well as currently incarcerated individuals at Pitchess Detention Center. Pre-release services focus and case management focus on preparing individuals for the challenges they will face upon release, connecting them with potential employers and residential support programs. Back on Track also partners with community leaders and organizations that support justice involved individuals.
