Second Chance Employment

OS Reentry Services


The mission of the Michigan Offender Success Model is to reduce crime by implementing a seamless plan of services, supervision and opportunities developed with each offender and delivered through State and Regional collaboration with the ultimate goal of obtaining sustainable employment and self-sufficiency.


The vision of the Michigan Offender Success Model is that every offender released from prison will have the tools needed to succeed in the community and the opportunity to utilize those tools to be productive, self-sufficient citizens.

How is This Accomplished?

The mission is accomplished by targeting service provision to meet the identified needs of returning clients, thereby reducing their risk of recidivism and enhancing their employment opportunities.

OS Reentry Services employs Specialists to assure all counties have adequate services and vendors to meet the needs of all returning parolees. They also develop employer relationships to provide employment opportunities to returning citizens, and coordinate job placement activities for program participants.
