Alameda County Reentry jobs!!

Leaders in Community Alternatives, Inc. (LCA) is a community-based criminal justice organization which has been providing services in California for over 23 years.  LCA operates several Day Reporting Centers (DRC’s) that offer a broad array of reentry services including intensive case management, substance abuse education, personal development, education, parenting, vocational, financial literacy and employment readiness and placement.  The programs integrate evidence-based criminal justice practices into organizational design and service delivery. The DRC model reduces recidivism and increases public safety by effectively engaging clients in skill building and prosocial activities to create opportunities to increase self-sufficiency and self-efficacy, and to help clients successfully exit the criminal justice system.
