The program is designed to provide a comprehensive action plan for mentally ill adults who have been incarcerated, prior to their release from jail. The Second Chance Act facilitates successful re-entry and promotes public safety by reducing the crime rate inherent in recidivism. So far, Integrated Recovery Network has been able to provide mentoring and supportive services to clients though case management and volunteers to over sixty-four clients.

Department of Labor - Office of Disability Employment Policy

As a part of the "Add Us In" initiative by the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, Integrated Recovery Network works to find and create effective models for small businesses to use to recruit and hire those with disabilities. Please visit http://www.dol.gov/odep/Addusin/.

The grant's focus is on small business owners, including those who are of a racial minority, LGBT community, women, veterans, or those with disabilities. Along with our consortium, we are striving to find a solution that is effective to small business owners and consumers. Once established, the model will be able to be implemented nationally and help many people with disabilities find jobs and careers. According to recent data from the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of March 2012, the percentage of individuals with disabilities participating in the labor force was 20.1 percent compared with 69.3 percent for individuals with no disabilities¹.

Over 75% of Integrated Recovery Network's clients have disabilities.
