Leveraging Interventions for Transformations (LIFT) program is a vocational training and case management program for non-violent criminal offenders based at the Leon County Jail. The primary mission is to increase the employability of incarcerated adults and facilitate successful transition back into society in order to reduce recidivism in the criminal justice system. The philosophy is to utilize an array of human service interventions to transform the numerous barriers experienced by adult offenders and enable them to become independent, self-sufficient citizens of their communities.
The program model is designed to accommodate each consumer’s vocational and community needs in order increase employability and reduce criminality. The program provides comprehensive assessment, vocational and life skills training, employment placement and monitoring, and wrap-around services and aims to anticipate participant’s needs prior to release in order to reduce recidivism and ensure individual success.
The program is funded by the Leon County Board of County Commissioners and works in conjunction with the Leon County Public Safety Coordinating Council.
