Program Information

Offenders referred to Step Forward for services are required to complete a screening and assessment prior to enrollment.  The intake unit utilizes the COMPAS (Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions), a risk and needs tool.  The COMPAS results in conjunction with an individualized interview will determine eligibility for Step Forward services.  If eligible, the offender is enrolled in Step Forward and assigned a Case Manager who develops a supervision plan based on the offender’s assessed criminogenic need(s).  Offenders who are deemed not eligible for Step Forward services will be given referrals to other agencies as appropriate.

Eligibility
