In collaboration with OIC of America, through the U.S. Department of Labor, Philadelphia OIC offers services catered to adults over 18 years old who have had contact with the justice system and reside in designated high-poverty, high-crime communities in the Philadelphia area.

The goal of the SOAR re-entry program is to assist justice involved individuals to make a successful transition back to the community by helping them become productive, responsible, and law-abiding citizens.

Program participants are provided with the support they need to be able to overcome the many challenges faced upon releases from incarceration. Supportive services include the following:

  • Educational training such as High School Diploma, HiSET, or GED.
  • Vocational training certifications in fields such as Culinary Arts, Construction, Housekeeping, Front Office and more.
  • Career readiness and job placement assistance in the selected career pathway.
  • Facilitation of referrals to heath and human services needed to successfully address substance abuse issues and/or mental health needs.
