Find a Program

Individuals who participate in WCS programs come from different walks of life but have one thing in common – they ALL have experienced some kind of significant adversity.

Most have been involved, or are at risk of becoming involved, in the criminal justice system. Some have been expelled from school. Some have been in prison. Others live with mental illness, addictions, or both. These serious challenges may seem insurmountable, but WCS programs help individuals FIND and STAY ON a path to their own personal success.

At WCS, experienced and dedicated staff members use nationally recognized best practices, research-based strategies, and proven curriculums, to ensure that participants can:

find freedom from addiction

Addiction can affect anyone, no matter their age, race, or socioeconomic status. A variety of WCS programs work with individuals on their journey to recovery.

be accountable for their actions

For many individuals, taking responsibility for past offenses and being held accountable for their actions are key parts of changing their behavior and the preventing future offenses. Through monitoring, testing and/or intensive case management, several WCS programs help individuals move beyond their past situations and on to healthier, more productive lives.

realize economic independence

Finding a job these days is difficult, but for those with a troubled or criminal past, finding employment is especially challenging. For these individuals, WCS programs provide job training, job placement, driver’s license recovery and other targeted services that help remove barriers to employment and increase each participant’s skills and earning potential.

move beyond a criminal past

Those returning to their families and communities after incarceration face tremendous social, emotional and economic challenges. WCS programs work with men and women during this transitional time to make sure they have the tools and critical support they need to leave their past behind and move on to healthy, crime-free lives.

become positive members of the community

Often, the trajectory for those involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in the criminal justice system, is a downward spiral. Several WCS programs are dedicated to keeping these individuals away from negative influences and guiding them on a path to becoming positive, contributing members of the community.
