RE-SHIFT is a program offered by the U.S. Probation Office, for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and Volunteers of America Residential Re-entry Center, where our goal is “Successfully Helping Individuals and Families Transition” on to community supervision. This class is offered to offenders and their families to educate them on the conditions and expectations of supervision.
By providing offenders and their families an opportunity to review the regulations as well as have their questions and concerns addressed by probation officers, RE-SHIFT helps to ease some of the anxiety and stress associated with re-entering the community. Because family support is critical in the transition process, RE-SHIFT encourages participants to invite up to two adult family members to attend the session with them. This inclusion will also allow families to address any questions or concerns they may have.
