“Without CORP, I probably would have gone back to prison.”
“It’s really encouraging to have skilled help, but also when it feels like family support”
“CORP and staff are very important for everyone in Duluth and people coming out of jail or prison. Without CORP, I would not be where I am at…I am sober, stable and happy.”
SOAR’s Community Offender Re-entry Program (CORP) assists ex-offenders in their transition from incarceration to the community through support, employment services, mentoring and case management. CORP is the only voluntary program in NE Minnesota specifically designed to comprehensively meet the needs of ex-offenders and reduce recidivism.
CORP helps with the re-entry process by assisting in housing, employment, education, relationships, family law issues, financial responsibility, transportation, mental/physical health, and sobriety.
People are recommended by corrections case workers while still incarcerated with initial assessments and case planning occurring pre-release. After release, CORP case managers meet weekly with clients to work on barriers hindering them from employment and stability.
