Yolanda Morales is the Senior Director of Health and Transitional Services at The Fortune Society. She has been dedicated to the field of reentry since 2003 when she was hired as an entry-level Counselor after being released from federal prison. She has a Bachelor's degree from Long Island University and is now actively working towards her Master's degree in Social Work from Columbia University. In 2013, Yolanda was selected for the Clinton Global Initiative, specifically for the EmPowerHER program in collaboration with Dress for Success Worldwide, supporting formerly incarcerated women. She is also a delegate for New York's branch of Dress for Success and serves as an Ambassador - referring women to be suited for employment and serving as a mentor for women. Yolanda frequently refers formerly incarcerated individuals to the College Initiative, an organization that creates pathways from criminal justice involvement to college and beyond. Currently, Yolanda oversees the Individualized Corrections Achievement Network (I-CAN) program on Rikers Island - a program recently increased by NYC DOC from $1.4 million to $4 million un-der Yolanda's leadership. Yolanda leads a team of over 20 staff members delivering crucial services to individuals preparing for release from Rikers Island, helping them focus on their education, employment, and other reentry goals. In July 2015, she was featured in Univision in a segment that emphasized the extraordinary work of the I-CAN program. The interview was conducted in Spanish and reached thousands in the Spanish-speaking community of New York City. Yolanda's own life story is a living example of what is possible through hard work, dedication, and persistence. She has not only helped thousands served by The Fortune Society, she has also nurtured the professional growth and education many of the formerly incarcerated staff she supervises.
