Every inmate goes through this program although they probably don't know that they are. TOPPSTEP gets the inmate a social security card and birth certificate. There is also a for the inmate fills out kind of like a resume that they can use when they get out to help them in their job search. It is called a job development package.

Thank you. Do they do it at any time during their incarceration or only close to release? Just wondering as my bf just went and he is up for parole next year.

Its done where there are different parts done throughout one's incarceration. So he sounds right on time with it.
