In collaboration with OIC of America, through the U.S. Department of Labor, Philadelphia OIC offers services to individuals over 18 years-old who have had contact with the criminal justice system and reside in designated high-poverty, high-crime communities in the Philadelphia area.
We currently provide service through two grants, one for young adults in Philly who have criminal justice involvement and the other for adults currently incarcerated in state and local facilities and are coming home to Philly. Currently we have partnerships with SCI-Chester, SCI-Phoenix, SCI-Camp Hill, and the local Philadelphia facilities on State Road.
Our reentry program helps justice involved individuals make successful transitions back to the community. Program participants are provided with the support to overcome the many challenges and stigma of having a criminal record.
