The CHANCES program is a reentry program assisting adults ages 18 years and older with their release from incarceration. Eligible individuals must have been convicted of Non-Violent Crimes under federal law, exiting from a state correctional facility or
Local/County Jail, have a release date between 20-270 days of the individual’s enrollment in the program (Prefer 180 days), and transitioning into the Central Region of New Mexico (Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia & Torrance Counties). The CHANCES program facilitates pre-release and post-release services to achieve a successful transition and reduce recidivism. Adults will be provided with Transition Planning, Case Management, Job Training & Certification, Job Placement, Supportive Services, and Aftercare.
The program is funded by a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration to the Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico. CHANCES is partnering with New Mexico Corrections Department, Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center, YDI Prevention, Intervention, and Behavioral Health Division, and Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico WIOA Adult Program.
