Page Background


Supporting fulfillment of the Department’s mission, with respect to programs and offender re-entry, is a variety of services offered in partnership with other organizations, agencies and volunteers.  


  • Young Fathers Support Network (YFSN) 
    Offered by the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services, YFSN provides supportive coaching and counseling to fathers and expectant fathers aged 40 years and younger geared toward promoting emotional and economic involvement in the lives of their children. 
  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters Amachi Program
    Amachi targets children of incarcerated parents, seeking to match them with volunteer mentors who serve as role models and provide assistance in handling the unique challenges and stigma they face.  Amachi is a partnership between the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization and the faith community. 
  • People Acquiring Skills for Success (PASS)
    Offered by the Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation, PASS provides career counseling, job readiness, and life skills training to enhance inmates’ employability and job stability. 
  • Anger Management Workshops
    Offered by the Anne Arundel County Conflict Resolution Center, Anger Management helps inmates identify their anger triggers and gives them tools to manage them. 
  • Parole & Probation Interface

    The State Division of Parole & Probation offers bi-monthly informational sessions for inmates soon to be released aimed at setting them up for success on probation.  Additionally, to facilitate a seamless transition from incarceration to probation, inmates with probation obligations meet one-on-one with an Agent to review the release plan established in the DDF case management process and to receive reporting instructions.
