T.E.C. is an organization that provides full service transitional support ranging from a complete individual plan development to ongoing life management skills. Whatever stage of transition someone is in T.E.C. can help.
Ideally the transitional process should start as much as a year in advance of release to allow for the best preparation for transition possible, thus increasing the chances for success.
Skilled and focused preparation ensures a greater likelihood and higher degree of success. Release preparation should include, but not be limited to, re-establishing community ties, securing housing and transportation, and exploring educational, training and employment/career opportunities.
While fulfilling the basic survival needs of food, clothing and shelter, one will also seek to repair/re-establish past relationships and at the same time create healthy new ones, therefore operating within a realistic or acceptable format or time frame is necessary for transition.
Upon release it is important to recognize and avoid the common pitfalls that lead to failure and pro-actively address an individual’s unique set of needs and skill sets to ensure success.
Those in transition often feel deserted or left without the tools or guideposts needed for success, like the deck is stacked against them. Currently there is not a Federal organization that completely encompasses transitional needs for veterans, and those formerly incarcerated, that allows them to reclaim their rightful citizenship.
We are here to provide those services.
