The long-term goal we use to measure the true success of our program is the triumphant completion of probation or parole without incident;(a violation of any sort that results in the reincarceration of that client while in the program). Since we receive most of our clients in the early stages of their probation or parole sentence we establish various task based on their intake interview to address their specific and personal barriers to success which sets and measures short term goals. Some of these goals consist of negative drug screens, High School Diploma or GED, obtaining all necessary legal documents, family reunification or the assistance with custody of children, acknowledgement of all financial responsibilities, discontinuation of status hearings, and finally obtaining permanent employment. Due to the various nature of each individual clients need, the metrics in which we use to measure success of the program include knowledge and behavior evaluation and outcome specific data collection which are mutually exclusive.
