CPTS is made up of agencies and individuals working together to support successful transitions for people returning to our communities after incarceration. They are established in numerous counties throughout Washington.
King County Reentry Programs
KCCPTS comprises a group of over 40 partners that work with justice involved individuals released from prison or jail that are transitioning to their families and community.
Kitsap Reentry Programs
A better way
In 2013, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe (PGST) launched a revolutionary new program—a non-punitive approach to Reentry that puts human dignity, connection, and compassion front and center.Reentry provides healing, hope, and opportunities for those who are and have been incarcerated. The end goal is to give these individuals the tools to become contributing members of society and embrace the possibility of a positive future—through connections, storytelling, culture, and community.Driven by a holistic approach, the program recognizes that individual success is not one-size-fits-all: for every client, the journey begins with a Risk & Needs Assessment to help tailor services and support.
Change doesn’t happen alone.
Every qualifying Reentry client is assigned a Success Coach, whose job it is to walk alongside the client to provide support and guidance throughout their journey. The program seeks to heal the whole person through trauma-informed practices such as restorative circles. These tools shift the client’s view of themselves and the social obstacles that have kept them locked in a cycle of addiction and incarceration.
Reentry provides a comprehensive menu of pre- and post-release services, including success coaching, relationship building, job training, employment support, and storytelling; that is learning to frame their own stories to release shame and embarrassment. While this is not a treatment program, every client must adhere to their recovery coaching plan and abstain from all drugs and alcohol.
Working together for a better community.
The Reentry program includes an ongoing partnership between PGST and the Kitsap County Jail to implement a human dignity model to help change the path for the many who struggle with incarceration, addiction, behavioral health issues, and homelessness. Many are recognizing the value in rethinking reentry. PGST and groups like the Kitsap Community Partnership for Transition Solutions are leading the way.
Renewed hearts. Renewed lives. A future filled with hope.
Addiction and incarceration are often symptoms of bigger problems: shame, disconnection, and desperation. With its Reentry program, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe has created better, healthier outcomes that reunite families, heal communities, and give those that are suffering a reason to finally hope for a better future.
