Help Fund the C.A.R.E. Reentry Program
“Court Assisted Re-Entry (C.A.R.E. Court) - is a four phase federal program in the Middle District of Pennsylvania designed to aide in the rehabilitation and reintegration of moderate to high‐risk federal offenders who have been recently released into the community. Criminal justice professionals, (C.A.R.E. Team), as well as other C.A.R.E. Service providers and participants encourage and assist offenders in seeking educational, employment, health, and other opportunities that help their return to society, as productive citizens.”
HOW THE FUND IS UTILIZED
"The Karen Snider Extraordinary Needs Fund" is just that, for "Extraordinary Needs," and financial emergencies of C.A.R.E. Reentry Participants who are complying with the C.A.R.E. Program. A member of the C.A.R.E. team creates the request for special needs and emergency funds, such as for: food, rent, evictions, medical, health, car rental, transportation or other emergency expenditures.
While C.A.R.E. Service Providers (ESSA Bank, Northampton Community College, Pyramid Health Care) and others, provide services under a special public/private partnership, not all needs are met; especially ones that are immediate, urgent, extraordinary, and if not funded will cause harm to the Participant. Your tax deductible donation will "only be used" where there is no other money or resources available from the government, C.A.R.E. Service Providers, or personal funds of the Participant.
Moore said he was thankful the federal probation department gave him the freedom to attend trucking school in Indiana. After a few years of driving, he became an owner-operator with the help of a special loan program ESSA offers to participants. The program enabled him to buy his first truck.
Moore’s business has become so successful that he recently purchased another truck and soon will employ another driver.
“I came home and I was determined, I’m not going back to jail,” he said.
