Gulfstream Goodwill Industries West Palm Beach, along with the PBSO (Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office), provides re-entry services to clients returning home from being incarcerated.
Goodwill's RESTORE (The Regional and State Transitional Offender Re-Entry) program, provides inmates with pre- and post-release services to assist with their transition back into the community. This program receives referrals directly from the Sago Palm Re-Entry Prison. Gulfstream Goodwill also receives direct referrals from PBSO and is able to provide pre- and post-release services to those referred.
Each participant served through Gulfstream Goodwill’s Adult Re-entry Services receives a case manager who works with them to address their needs and concerns. The participant is given the tools and guidance to deal with the barriers created by their past, creating a pathway to their future. Services and referrals offered include but are not limited to assessment, transitional housing, one-on-one counseling, empowerment groups, family reunification, substance abuse treatment and/or counseling, applications for community assistance, obtaining identification, and assistance with employment. The goals of the program are to help participants develop a better and more productive life for themselves and their families, reduce recidivism and increase public safety throughout Palm Beach County.
