The key to success with any major change initiative is getting the right people on your team at the right time. The Carey Group worked with us during the kick-off of our Evidence-Based Initiative in Travis County. Their assistance with stakeholders, strategic planning, and guidance on implementation issues created the foundation for success. The decision to work with The Carey Group was easy and, in hindsight, simply brilliant.

If your agency is about to embark on changing the environment from a traditional model of probation supervision to one based on sound principles of evidence-based practices, you can have no better guide than The Carey Group.

Technical assistance provided by The Carey Group strengthened the foundation of evidence-based practices in the North Carolina Division of Community Corrections. We had an introduction to EBP previously, but it was not until The Carey Group helped us understand the research and overlaid it with first-hand field experiences that front-line supervisors and officers could apply it in their day-to-day supervision of offenders.

Tim Moose, Director of the Division of Community Corrections, North Carolina Department of Corrections


The Carey Group provided us with the inspiration and leadership we needed to help the State of Illinois implement evidence-based practices (EBP) in our Probation and Court Services Departments. Their reputation in the criminal justice field as dedicated, passionate professionals committed to making a difference is well deserved. Their extensive knowledge of the EBP research and delivery of services is top notch. Clearly, they have made a difference in Illinois.

The Carey Group worked with our organizing committee closely to understand the goals of our conference and the target audience. Their presentation and facilitation that day was as if they had been at the meetings with us for the 18 months preceding our community forum. The material was provocative, educational, and entertaining. We could not have been more pleased.

Jack Ruszczk, 4th Judicial District Probation Chief, Colorado


The Carey Group led the Illinois Balanced and Restorative Justice Initiative in such a way that we were able to look at where we were at that time, where we wanted to go, and how we were going to get there. They provided outstanding leadership, integrity, a positive attitude, and a caring spirit. Thank you so much for all you do and who you are.

Sally Wolf, Director of Ford County Court Services, Illinois
