Housing and Vocational Services

Community Vocational Support


The Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center’s One Stop program provides service navigation, workforce development, employment consultant/placement, and educational services to clients under the supervision of the Vermont Department of Corrections that have recently been released from incarceration, currently under supervision or have a history of being under supervision. The One Stop program works to identify the barriers participants may encounter when finding and maintaining long term employment and works to eliminate these barriers while working towards self identified career goals. This is achieved through working with participants to develop interpersonal communication skills, self regulation tactics and employment mediation services through advocacy with local area employers. Our staff outreaches locally to employers to develop partnerships and opportunities for our clients, while supporting individuals throughout their employment placement. Participants will meet with their Vocational Specialist regularly to develop their individualized employment plan, be connected with local vocational resources, and move towards financial independence/stability through successful employment. Participants learn skills on resume building, interview etiquette and workplace communication. The program offers techniques that are often only learned through employment longevity.

Community Housing Support Services


Community Housing Support is a service provided by Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center that works with individuals in the community who have present or past DOC involvement and are experiencing housing instability.  This support can include light case management activities, monitoring, service navigation, apartment searching, application assistance, communication with area landlords, and assistance with managing funding resources etc. Staff can also complete referrals to other community agencies for additional assistance to provide wrapped support. 


Our Outreach specialist works to develop positive relationships with area landlords and property managers in order to support them and their tenants. They engage in local housing meetings and are up to date on any new or existing housing vouchers, program developments, and available resources for the individuals we serve.
