Reentry

Each year, millions of people return to their communities from jail or prison. Ensuring people’s safe and successful transition from incarceration to the community is challenging and highly complex. Reentry is more than staying out of jail or prison; it also involves reuniting families, eliminating barriers to employment, finding stable housing, and much more. Our team works with communities across the country to provide people with the reentry supports they need.
