COMPREHENSIVE PRE/POST-RELEASE REENTRY BROKERAGE
For individuals 18 years of age or older with a criminal background (does not have to have an incarceration history; simply a criminal record) Reentry Brokerage consists of the following:
Comprehensive risk/needs assessment (four  separate assessment tools are used to determine the client’s risk for re-offending, specific needs, achieved training and work history, education level, eligible benefits, etc.):
Individualized Reentry Brokerage Plan compiled by the client’s Unlocking DOORS’ Client Broker from all information gained during the client’s assessment; the plan is “individualized” to the client’s specific needs;
Referrals to one or more of Unlocking DOORS’ Community Partners/Providers and other service providers/resources (the experts in specific services and resources) to assist the client in working through the specific items addressed in his/her Individualized
* NOTE: Currently, Unlocking DOORS has Reentry Brokerage Centers (program offices) in the greater Dallas and Tarrant County areas, and provides comprehensive case management in these counties, as well as the contiguous counties of Collin, Denton, Rockwall, Kaufman, Ellis, Johnson, Hood, Parker, and Wise. Unlocking DOORS’ Comprehensive Pre/Post-Release Client Brokerage will expand throughout the State of Texas as additional offices are opened. Unlocking DOORS plans to establish Reentry Brokerage Centers in Bexar, Harris and Travis Counties by the end of 2016 by working with Partners/Providers for space allocation. This allows for a “One-Stop” atmosphere to be established for the clients while reserving much needed Unlocking DOORS’ resources.
