BALTIMORE and LONDON, Sept. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Social Solutions Global, Inc., the leading provider of performance management software for human services, is proud to announce the launch of the first live Efforts to Outcomes (ETO®) software system in the United Kingdom at Switchback, an intensive mentoring program that helps 18-24 year old offenders make real, long-lasting change after release.
Switchback pairs former young adult offenders, called Trainees, with a full-time Switchback Mentor who builds an unconditional, long-term, intensive and motivational relationship with each Trainee, to help them achieve stability across 10 Switchback Pathways. Switchback works with a range of employers (from local cafes to luxury hotels), agencies (including probation and housing) and specialists (such as colleges and drug counsellors), which improve the chances of success for Trainees and the organizations involved. By helping Trainees navigate these systems and access existing opportunities, Switchback provides a conduit from prison to the community that is completely tailored to the individual.
Switchback will use ETO software to provide outcomes-focused case management to Trainees, and to provide accurate data to inform internal development as well as external stakeholders. "Young adults are the highest risk group for re-offending, and we believe that intensive, holistic work is what it takes to break the cycle of recidivism. Having the Efforts to Outcomes system in place to track Trainees' progress and inform Switchback Mentors' work with Trainees will help us continue to provide high quality services and ensure Trainees are receiving the support they need to achieve stability," said Leah Selinger, Head of Operations at Switchback.
"We are very excited to celebrate the launch of Switchback's ETO system, the first live ETO system in the United Kingdom. We are proud to support Switchback's work to break the cycle of re-offending for youth transitioning back into their communities," said Scott Johnson, CEO of Social Solutions.
Switchback is an intensive mentoring program, with a catering twist, that helps 18-24 year old offenders make real, long-lasting change after release. Switchback Mentors stick by the Trainees as they move through the prison gate, encouraging and challenging them across all areas of their lives. This is new territory for most Trainees - an honest, frank and unconditional relationship with someone who is there for them on a daily basis. More information: http://www.switchback.org.uk/.
