Parolees and Probationers Resource Fair

Available resources to help parolees and probationers make successful transitions to life beyond prison are often difficult to find. However, the Sacramento Community Based Coalition (SCBC), the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and the Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) are teaming up to provide a “one stop shopping” place for eligible men and women seeking services.

Parolees and probationers will have the opportunity to learn about education, employment, health, housing, and treatment resources in their community.

The Resource Fair is open to all interested Sacramento County parolees and probationers as well as SCBC clients.~
