Due to formerly incarcerated people being faced with multiple issues and needs when released from correctional facilities, reentry programs provide various services and treatment plans to assist specific individuals. Reentry programs typically offer services to help find employment opportunities, treat substance abuse issues, improve behavioral and cognitive skills, or even manage mental health. The length of each participant’s involvement varies from months to years at a time. Lastly, some reentry programs provide services to all returning citizens (juveniles, adults, males, or females), while others only provide these services for a particular population.
Below, you’ll find some resources useful for formerly incarcerated people reentering society ranging from a Reentry Report completed on Spring 2021; and a Reentry Resources List useful for Housing, Employment, and Social Services/Benefits; and several brochures on mental health, healthcare, and choosing a college.
This Reentry Report was created by Asyria Daniels, M.P.H. and Tamia Hurst, MSW in Spring 2021. The report includes a literature review on reentry; an analysis of multiple surveys of formerly incarcerated individuals about reentry; and a list of Reentry Resources. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
This list of Reentry Resources includes contact information for categories of assistance such as Credit, Education, Employment, Housing, Social Services Benefits, and Substance Abuse Referral. Though this list is updated and maintained on a regular basis, please contact us at email@example.com with any questions or concerns about any of the resources detailed.
