New Web App

What we needVergil is a web app designed to help probationers and parolees navigate their case plan responsibilities within their communities one step at a time. Through individualized pathways to success, behaviorally informed nudges, planning prompts, and other supports, Vergil helps our end users turn their intentions to achieve stability into actions that can speed up their exit from the criminal justice system. Through a validated check in/out processes we move one step closer to being able to help clients show their case plan progress, get credit, and eventually get off probation within a year (the minimum probation term adjusted for good behavior) as opposed to 3 (the full probationary term)
