Corrections & Reentry


Reentry programs aim to reduce offender recidivism and successfully reintegrate an offender back into the community. Reentry efforts often begin in prison and transition into the community once a prisoner is released. Typically, reentry services include case management and assistance with housing, education, employment, healthcare, and substance abuse.
