From providing a re-entry checklist, and information about how to access housing, transportation, education, job search, and a host of other services, it’s all here in our re-entry resource hub.  There is even information about how to stay focused on personal strengths, the importance of supportive people during this time, and the need to set and achieve goals.

The first weeks and months following release may present challenges to the individual, their families, and their friends. Our hope is to alleviate some of the stress by providing critical supports and resources in this re-entry hub to promote success for life.
