Extended services are offered to individuals who demonstrate a commitment to successful reentry.
Currently, REAP provides affordable housing for more than 80 returning citizens. Houses are locating in both Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in Florida.
REAP assists clients in applying for Federal, State, and local benefit programs including SSI, Disability, and VA benefits in addition to appointments with a legal aide attorney.
REAP has working relationships with over 25 employers who are predisposed to employ returning citizens. Past REAP clients have found employment in the landscape, constructions, and food service industries.
REAP believes that a proper education can lead to a good job. Unfortunately, many of our clients come to us without high-school diplomas or functional literacy. We provide referral services for GED and adult education programs at The University of West Florida, Pensacola State College, Locklin Technical College, and George Stone Technical College.
Food, shelter, and employment are only part of the reentry journey. Ultimately, we hope our clients find a sense of belonging in the community so that they may thrive as citizens. In addition to hosting regular emotional support meetings for active clients, REAP offers referral services to a wide range of professional mental healthcare providers including Lakeview Center, Alcohol Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Celebrate Recovery.
