Work Release: As a part of their program, residents complete the facility's vocational development program. This program consists of identifying skill levels and vocational interests, attending classroom training to develop job seeking and retention skills, practice interviews, resume writing, and budgeting skills. After successful completion of the internal vocational development program (approximately 90 days into program) residents are individually assessed and recommended for work release. Work release is an earned privilege.
At this point, residents are responsible for obtaining and maintaining viable employment. Residents may find employment in their home county if they have viable transportation to and from the workplace or may obtain temporary employment in Trumbull County.
Financial Responsibilities: While there is no fee for residents placed at NEOCAP, residents are responsible for the costs of all medical and dental services, along with the cost of any medications needed during their stay.
Before obtaining employment, residents are required to develop a budget. The moneys earned from employment are used to provide support for the residents’™ families while at NEOCAP. Residents also budget moneys for medical/dental bills, court costs, restitution and fines.
