    INTRODUC;TION

    The Brokerage Concept

    The Division of Parole Supervision endorses the concept

    of the Parole Officer as a "broker of community services."

    Brokerage has been defined as a realistic approach to parole

    supervision because it speaks to the Parolee's immediate and

    pract ical needs. Problems facing the ex-offender--such as

    lack 0 f ernploymen t, hous ing, food and clothing, social re-

    j ection, lack of coping Skills--cannot be so ..... ved by talk .

    These problems requi~e action of a practical nature designed

    to provide concrete and immediate relief. Th is is the sort

    of help the offender needs now, cp'n understand and work to-

    ward. It is the kind of goal attainment which has immediate

    impact on the parolee's life and can provide the types of ex-

    periences which convince him that he is important, is capable

    of doing for himself and can 1 i ve a lawful and productive

    . 1 ife. If t.he Parole Of f icer can help the parolee resolve

    some of the more pressing problems facing him, we have come a

    long way in removing the causes of crime and recidivism.

    However, no one Parole Officer has all the skills necessary

    to deal with the multifaceted needs of people, especially in

    view of incre9sing caseloads. The al ternative is for the

    Parole Officer to begin by identifying the individual needs

    of the parolee, and then identifying the communi ty agencies

    best able to provide them. Putting the need together with

    the service agency best able to :):ul£ill that need is what

    brokerage is all about.

  • How to Use This Directory

    This directory is designed to aid institutional parole

    officers in pre-parole counseling, and district parole

    officers in pre-parole investigations, parole plan develop-

    ment and especially in parole supervision. The first part of

    the directory should be especially helpful in fulfilling

    special conditions of parole such as drug and alcohol

    counseling or psychological counseling. The second part of

    the directory lists halfway houses contracting with the Board

    of Pardons and Paroles. Residency in these houses may be by

    special condition or by direct referral from field officers.

    Placements of parolees in halfway houses from the field have

    often been an alternative to parole revocation. Halfway

    houses provide not only supervision in temporary housing but

    may provide job counseling, drug or alcohol treatment and

    psychological counseling, and should be used when client

    needs cannot be adequately met within the community by public

    agencies. Field parole officer::: should use the directory

    before transferring parolees between districts to ascertain

    whether that district provides services for maintaining the \

    parole plan. The third part of the directory shows those

    public and private agencies that may be useful in resolving

    problems in parole adjustment or parole planning such as

    medical needs, employment, welfare programs, veteran's

    benefits and treatment programs.

  • It's Up to You

    In developing job resource ban~$, parole officlars are

    encouraged to make personal contacts with community employers

    and personnel directors. Also, the Texas Employm~nt

    Commission will furnish parole officers with current labor

    market information and occupational information by industry.

    By Division policy, parolees wpo are unemployed are expected

    to register with TEe and to follow up on jobs r-eferred by

    that agency in an effort to find their own employment.

    In those counties where there are no known services

    available (as noted in the qirectory), or if the cost of

    available services is inhibiting, the parolee should be

    referred to the Texas Rehabilitation Commission. Upon

    registering with TRC, that agency will determine whether the

    parolee is eligible for their assistance.

    Changes in the Directory

    District parole officers should ~ake a continuous survey

    of services available in their counties. Any additions,

    changes or deletions of agencies listed in this directory are

    to be reported by memorandum to the Community Ser'li.ces Office

    of the Board of Pardons and parole9' 3838 Northwest Loop 410,
