WAGEES Programs provide re-entry services to people who have been, or are about to be, released from a correctional facility. Through this program, The Empowerment Program and Stout Street Health Center work together to provide medical, behavioral health, and vocational support services, free of charge. Current Re-Entry Services include case management, supportive services, integrative health services, medications, MAT Program, and healthcare. Within a month of your release, you may ask your DOC Case Manager to contact the WAGEES Women's Pilot Program, or you can call after your release. Use the numbers below. WAGEES is for women who live, or will live, in the Denver-Metro Area.
Ways to be referred to the WAGEES Women’s Pilot Program:
- If you are already on parole, talk with your parole officer or a DOC Community Re-entry Specialist
- If you are in community corrections (residential or non-residential status), you can talk with a Case Manager at the program or the DOC liaison
- If you are in a correctional facility, talk with your Case Manager
- *If you have been released from a correctional facility and are not on supervision, you are NOT eligible for the Women’s Pilot Program.
