FEDERAL OFFENDERS REHABILITATION PROGRAM, A COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH TO STUDY THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION PERSONNEL AND PROCEDURES AS AN ADDITIONAL RESOURCE IN THE CORRECTIONAL PROCESS.
BELL, PERRY B.
TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION PERSONNEL AND PROCEDURES IN THE CORRECTIONAL PROCESS, EIGHT INDIVIDUAL PROJECTS, COMPOSING THE FEDERAL OFFENDERS REHABILITATION PROGRAM, WERE INSTITUTED. THE PROGRAM IS FUNDED PARTIALLY BY GRANTS FROM THE SEVEN STATES INVOLVED AND PARTIALLY BY THE U.S. VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION ADMINISTRATION. AT THE CLOSE OF THE FIRST GRANT PERIOD, EACH PROJECT CONTRIBUTED PROGRESS REPORTS COMPRISED OF HISTORICAL INFORMATION, MAJOR PROBLEMS, EVALUATION, AND IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE PUBLIC OFFENDER PROGRAMS. SEVERAL OF THE PROJECTS, WHICH ARE LOCATED IN ATLANTA, CHICAGO, DENVER, PITTSBURGH, SAN ANTONIO, SEATTLE, SPRINGFIELD (ILLINOIS), AND TAMPA, MENTION COMMON PROBLEMS SUCH AS A NEED FOR READILY ACCESSIBLE FUNDS FOR CLIENTS WITH EMERGENCIES. SEATTLE AND DENVER SOLVED THIS BY UTILIZING A THIRD PARTY WHICH THEY SUBSEQUENTLY REIMBURSED WITH PROJECT FUNDS. SOME PROJECTS, NOTABLY ATLANTA, EXPERIENCED RELUCTANCE ON THE PART OF STATE OFFICIALS TO VIEW THEM AS PRIMARILY ENGAGED IN RESEARCH AND, THUS, TO APPROVE UNUSUAL INNOVATIONS. HOWEVER, IN TAMPA, WHERE CASE FUNDS ARE WHOLLY SUPPORTED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, INNOVATIONS HAVE BEEN INSTITUTED, INCLUDING THE PROVISION OF $75.00 PER WEEK FOR LIVING MAINTENANCE WHICH PERMITS CLIENTS TO GO TO FULL-TIME CLASSES OFFERED BY TH PROJECT. EVALUATIONS WERE OPTIMISTIC, ALTHOUGH PRELIMINARY RESULTS WERE DISAPPOINTING. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PREPARED FOR USE AT THE FEDERAL OFFENDERS REHABILITATION CONFERENCE (DENVER, MAY 14-17, 1967). (PR)
