To our Payee Resource Partners

We pledge to hold our mutual clients accountable to the conditions within their release plan as well as the resident’s individual life goals. Progress and setbacks will be promptly communicated to the individual counselor or payee in charge of the resident’s success.  Prompt replies and open communications are a major cornerstone to the success of our partnership and the successful reintegration of our mutual charges.
