Transitional Aftercare Network

The Transitional Aftercare Network trains individuals, agencies, faith-based and community organizations to provide aftercare through an educational forum within their own counties. Using evidence-based practices, TAN trains individuals, agencies, faith-based organizations and community organizations to mentor offenders. TAN equips mentors to assist offenders who are transitioning from incarceration and re-integrating back with their families, communities, and workforce to become productive citizens.

Guiding Principles

  • Spirituality
  • All individuals have the potential to contribute
  • Every individual deserve opportunities
  • Truth governs our actions

Mentor Matches

TAN works in collaboration with NCDAC pre-release programs. Graduates from these approved programs are eligible to apply for TAN services. TAN will assist offenders and ex-offenders whose infractions do not exceed a Class C or D disciplinary level. Some infractions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. All infractions will be verified through the OPUS data base. Those who request TAN services will submit an application and go through an interview process with TAN representatives from the county to which they will be returning. TAN does not formally work with sex offenders; however, it will provide references to other resources when available.
