Transition Professionals


 


Reducing Recidivism the Lives We Impact Transition Professionals
Resumes and job search Shelter and treatment referrals 
Advocacy - court support Enrollment in healthcare and social services Alcohol and Drug Counseling Credit/Financial Counseling 
Reentering society after serving time in prison or jail is difficult. Individuals do not know what to expect or who to turn to for help.  Without proper support, former offenders risk further incarceration.


At Transition Professionals, we are aware of the issues ex-offenders face when released: employment, counseling, clothing, healthcare, housing, and more. 


That's why we are here, and that's what we do, we help people get the second chances they deserve.

LET US ALL WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE ALL OF THIS COUNTY A STIGMA FREE ZONE!  AS YOU ALL KNOW I LOVE HELPING HOMELESS AND………..
You all know I have mental illnesses & I really have a problem when people take advantage of the mentally ill, but really what this is about is “Stigma Free” Let us look at what Paramus has done; they pioneered this county as the first town to do it!
  This is what Paramus has to say:
“Making Paramus New Jersey a Stigma-Free Zone by sharing resources, training, and information on mental illness. Let's make it easy for people to get help!
Description
1 in 4 adults experience a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year, yet more than half will not seek treatment. Why? The main reasons cited are shame and fear of judgment from friends, family, and co-workers. In other words, the STIGMA associated with mental diseases - even though it’s a disease like any other. It is our goal to build a society where people are free of stigma and can get the help they need. We can build that society by banding together as a community, breaking down the walls, and showing others how they can do the same.

Join a coalition of concerned citizens, business leaders, local government, and school officials as we work to build a community that supports training, education, and dialogue about mental illness. Get information, get to an event, get involved!”

What they are saying 5 ways to join:  
Learn-There are plenty of resources available to learn more about mental illness.  2. Be Kind-Think about your behavior towards and responses to another who may be displaying symptoms.  3. Share-We post helpful resources on our Facebook page. Share them with others.  4. Create Awareness-Post one of our signs in front of your home or business to let others know you care.  5. Sponsor an Event-contact Paramus for upcoming events and be a sponsor.

            Wehave Been where some of you will have to go. There is an old saying “We trudgethe road to happy destiny”!- Our uphill battle, our tragedies, our slow road;sometimes painful road to living a better life makes for a better fulfillinglife. Simply we make mistakes, we fall but we get up. At the end we look backand say: “we made it”. It makes us more grateful for what we have and what wehave accomplished. As time goes on we pass our life lessons on to others tomake it just a little bit easier.

 

            Simplywhat we have went through we want to pass on what we learned, big or small.This is what we do. This guide has many resources that we have found out aboutalong our journey! We now pass it along to you. Hopefully you will do the samefor someone.

 

            Thenext few pages has some miscellaneous information, some forms and listings ofOrganizations that might be of some use to you. Thank you in advance for takingthe time and supporting HRG.-Created by homeless and low income people forhomeless and low income people, for all of us to better ourselves!

HIP 131MAIN ST. SUITE 120HACKENSACK NJ 07601 201-996-9100

 

          We want to thank the Path program for their support and theresources they provide. We also want to thank the HIP program for theirknowledge and guidance for the homeless and mentally challenged. Especially we want to thank Church on the Green for their SPIRITUALGUIDENCE as well as helping with food and free clothing. In our book he is asaint! There are many organizations that we work with in the sense of gatheringas much information as we can to end homelessness, poverty and fighting forhandicapped and mentally disabled people in our area.

          The best way for us to get our information to you is byjoining us on our Facebook page and interacts with us and our followers. Theyhave been through what you are going through!

Lastly, We have heard that GA of Hackensack will be closing downand we will keep you up to date on our FB page but for now what we understandis that if you need their services you must go to Social services in Rochellepark.

          Good luck andhope we can help you. I will look forward to seeing you on Facebook and we canall help each other. There we give updated information on what is going on inour area and our followers and most importantly our supporters (EVERYONE ON OURFB PAGE) give us input on new programs and feedback on new things in our area.Without all of you We would not be here today.

  

Miscellaneous:

Families first orGovernment’s pockets first?

          I think we all agree that we cannotlive on 4.00 per day. Yes some people did not get cut. They are the lucky ones.Yes it is meant to just be a supplement but figure it out; as an example, ifyou get 741.00 from SSI. And your rent is between 650.00 and 700.00. Will thatlast 41.00 help you make it through the month? Roughly this makes it roughly:6.50 a day for food.

          Bottom line, Please get on board &email us for an online petition to see if we can get the Government to raisethe food stamp amount.

Just copythis and sign it then either fax it or e-mail it to us. We can’t do this aloneit will take a bunch of signatures.

Thank you inadvance,

THANK YOU!!!

 I first want to thank church on the green for their generosity; clothing food for the homeless and low income. 

            Lastly, a VERY special thanks to the *PATH Program at CBH care. Especially the path workers  that help the homeless with mental illness. They goabove and beyond when it comes to helping finding housing, transportation,guidance, and all other resources.

 *PATH located @ 395main streets Hackensack NJ 07601. 201-646-0333. If you are homeless and have a mental illness, call themand they will set you up with a path worker that will do everything in theirpower to help fight homelessness and many other issues!  THEY ARE A GREAT RESOURCE!!

Remember, if you have any ideas,comments, suggestions or need help with anything that we can work together andfight homelessness, hunger, mental illness, and any other problems WE WANT to hearfrom you.
