Community Partnership for Transition Services (CPTS)
Vision/Value Statement: To build a community that takes into consideration the talents and contributions of ALL its members, including individuals who are in transition from prison & jail back to their community and families. We aspire to join those in their life changing and defining TRANSITION as they integrate into society through a holistic and comprehensive set of services and support, which will allow them to build and lead more self-sufficient and productive lives. (William A. Ramos)
Purpose Driven Mission: To translate our vision and values through a series of purpose driven community venues that support successful transition for adults who have earned their return back to the community and their families.
Join us monthly for the opportunity to network with state, federal, non-profit, faith-based, and other community members who are dedicated to the reentry process.
