Kathleen Martinez, the Transition Coordinator from Red Rocks Community College, met with about 15 clients currently residing within the Intervention Community Corrections Services program (ICCS) in Lakewood. The two-hour program was set-up by Community Educational Outreach staff members.
Kathleen presented information to the clients relating to college enrollment, eligibility, financial aid – all from the perspective of assisting persons with DOC backgrounds. The two-hour session focused on specifics of initial goal-setting, and then addressed past problems and challenges faced by persons with a felony history.
Red Rocks Community College is unique among local higher learning institutions through their establishment of a Transition Director and team to support persons facing post correctional life.
