National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.; Administrative Office of the United States Courts, Washington, DC. Div. of Probation.
Intended for community leaders (public and private) and also for correctional leaders, this resource guide outlines the design of a model community-operated program to provide comprehensive services for the employment and training of ex-offenders. An introduction provides historical perspective and discusses the relationship between crime and unemployment. Next, a program description is presented that covers the need for a Community Alliance Program for Ex-Offenders (CAPE), CAPE concept, goal and objectives, leadership role, key elements of the CAPE program, employer contact, benefits, and beginning a local CAPE program. In the third section, the significant planning and development tasks involved in local program implementation are discussed. A section on program management outlines the coordinator functions and describes approaches to participant record tracking. The final section lists the basic components of a comprehensive service delivery system and discusses guidelines and implementation options for each of these services. Appendixes include a sample interagency agreement and other forms, names and addresses of individuals to contact for further information, and a bibliography. (YLB)
