CPR Collaboration Partners

CPR Collaboration Partners

Project Collaboration:
Volunteers of America has designed a coordinated effort that effectively and efficiently builds relationships and engages participants and their families in CPR services before the offender has ever exited the gates of the institution.

CPR is a collaboration of experienced, community-based service providers who are committed to offering professional intervention and support for young adult offenders.  Together, the CPR team of private and public partners provides integrated case management. Treatment counselors, parole officers, family educators, and employment specialists combine incentives and sanctions to encourage the young men to get involved in positive activities, stay out of trouble and get back on track when they make mistakes.

CPR's partners include

  • Volunteers of America Oregon
