Far too often we are incarcerating people for too long and failing to prepare former inmates for a safe transition and productive reentry into their communities. The stigma associated with incarceration can at times exacerbate or in some cases, increase the recidivism rates, because the criminal justice system failed to prepare formerly incarcerated individuals; by not providing individuals with the proper skills sets, or support services to ensure a smooth transition into society. The lack of community programs and structured supervision, and failure to considered underlying factors such as, substance abuse, mental health, lack of education/vocation skills, has a lost generation of men and women. While incarcerated, most of these issues, were not appropriately addressed, and now compounded with a criminal record, has only intensified the obstacles faced by the formerly incarcerated individual, their family members, friends, and other community stakeholders.
In 2006, Vertex was established out of a personal commitment to pay forward the compassion shown by individuals working within the Criminal Justice System, and their personal values and commitment to assist ex-offenders enter their communities. This inspired Vertex’s founding members to establish a multifaceted company. Vertex’s mission is not only to engage and prepare ex-offenders to be successful within their respective communities, but to eliminate or at least minimize the rate of recidivism.
Vertex, LLC has positioned itself to address the issues during the pre and post release process. Vertex strives to create an empathetic road map for ex-offenders, so that the re-entry transition is successful. Additionally, Vertex, LLC., will continue to work with ex-offenders, extended family members, friends, and various community stakeholders to ensure a healthy and productive transition into their respective communities.
