The Re-Entry Program is a partnership between Madison-Area Urban Ministry (MUM), Dane County Human Services and the Employment and Training Association providing Foodshare Employment and Training Services (FSET) to ex-offenders. The results of this program lead participants to employment and skills training opportunities that enhance employability and lead to economic independence.
In collaboration with MUM's Journey Home Program our Case Manager focuses on helping Re-Entry participants address their employment and training needs through services and referrals focusing on motivation/life skills activities, employment search, and employer based skills training activities. Some of the areas we cover include:
Motivation / Life Skills
