Yolo County Day Reporting Center Hosts Inaugural Graduation Nov. 19

Many former offenders struggle to find success because the transition to life after incarceration is difficult.  There are a variety of challenges, such as a lack of job training, lack of a high school diploma or equivalent, and the absence of valuable life skills.  The Yolo County Day Reporting Center, which opened in February 2013, provides vocational training and life skills programs designed to provide former inmates and offenders the skills needed to find and keep a job.  On November 19, noon to 2:00 p.m., the inaugural class of the Yolo County Day Reporting Center will be honored for successfully meeting many of these challenges and completing the core components of the transition program.  Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto will be the keynote speaker during the graduation which will take place at the Yolo County Office of Education Conference Center located at 1280 Santa Anita Court in Woodland.

The Yolo County Day Reporting Center program is a collaborative effort between the Sacramento County Office of Education, the Yolo County Sheriff and Probation departments, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.  The program provides comprehensive evidence-based services to men and women on probation, parole or releasing from the Yolo County jail.  The overarching goal is to reduce recidivism through effective community integration by addressing the causes of re-offending behavior, thereby strengthening individuals and families, and improving public safety as a whole.

Clients in the program are referred by the Sheriff, Probation or Parole.  The services are offered at no cost to the client at the Cameron Training Center which is adjacent to the Yolo County Jail.  Clients have access to educational programs, drug and alcohol treatment, and parenting and anger-management classes.  Some of the courses provided by partners include GED Preparation, 52 Week Batterer’s Intervention and Substance Abuse.  Additionally, partners assist clients in determining benefits eligibility, child support, veteran services and other public resources.
