Get proof of your GED / high school completion, or any other classes you took while in prison. •
If you got your GED while in prison, make sure you have your transcript before you are released. The Bureau does not keep or give GED transcripts post-release. •
If you can, create a folder with everything positive you have done while in prison, including certificates for vocational training, drug treatment, anger management or any other cognitive behavioral therapy. n
Get your medical records. Ask Health Services about getting copies of your medical records while you are still in prison to help you transition to treatment in the community. n
Confirm your housing. Your Reentry Affairs Coordinator, Case Manager, or Social Worker (if available) can provide you information about finding a place to live in your release city.
Social Workers can also help if you need special housing such as a nursing home, assisted living, senior housing, or group home placement.
