Allegheny County Jail Collaborative: Career Opportunity

The Allegheny County Jail Collaborative is augmenting services to prepare Jail residents to leave the Jail and successfully reenter the community.  A new reentry team is being formed to assist residents and their families make these transitions.   Several positions are available now in two categories:  Reentry Specialist and Reentry Family Support Specialist.  (See below).  These positions are funded through a federal grant awarded to the Allegheny County Department of Human Services on behalf of the Jail Collaborative and are administered through the Human Services Administration Organization.  Federal funding is anticipated for three years with subsequent funding through County and private sources.
