Dual Track Re-Entry Program (DTR)

WorkSource Montgomery’s Dual Track Re-Entry Program (DTR) plays a pivotal role in aiding justice-involved individuals within Montgomery County in their journey towards work readiness and sustainable job placement.

WorkSource Montgomery, in partnership with the Montgomery County Correctional Center, operates a nationally-recognized re-entry initiative within the correctional facility. Montgomery County was one of the first centers in the country to operate a job center within a maximum security correctional facility, and has been used as a national model for pre-release Career Centers.

Track I

Focuses on providing support to participants who are currently housed at the American Job Center within the Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF). Within the facility, our dedicated team works tirelessly to foster job readiness skills and create pathways for sector-based training, with the goal of equipping individuals for a successful transition back into society.

Track II

Extends our commitment beyond the confines of the correctional facility, reaching out to justice-impacted individuals residing in the community. This includes those who have completed their sentences at MCCF, individuals under parole or probation, and anyone else facing the challenges of background barriers. Our dedicated team offers a comprehensive suite of services, including work readiness assistance, guidance in career exploration and skill development, and proactive job placement support.

In order to create a continuum of care, DTR has a community-based Program Specialist providing career coaching and wraparound case management, as well as a dedicated Talent Placement Consultant, who connects individuals to open positions. Community-based staff members are on site one day a week.
