UNION COUNTY RESOURCE CENTER
In January 2017, Union-Snyder CAA was contracted to manage programs and services at the Union County Resource Center (UCRC). Formerly known as the Day Reporting Center, the UCRC has expanded its programs and services to include members of the general public while keeping its partnership with Union County Probation/Parole to support individuals involved in the criminal justice system.
Union-Snyder CAA provides foundational services at the UCRC from our Education & Employment component, as outlined below. Partner agencies in the space also include Gaudenzia, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and more. By offering a co-located service approach, customers in Union County and surrounding areas can address a variety of needs at once to be supported into self-sufficiency, economic stability, and positive re-entry into society post incarceration.

Union-Snyder CAA provides Education & Employment services and workshops to help individuals achieve their personalized educational and/or career goal(s). Personalized goal plans are developed with the assistance of a Union-Snyder CAA Case Manager.
