Individuals with criminal justice involvement form one of the most disadvantaged populations in the nation. They experience a myriad of challenges and harmful stigmas that prevent them from successfully reentering society. These challenges include accessing education, employment, affordable housing, substance abuse treatment, healthcare, and family services.
Successful reentry involves more than just transitioning from the criminal justice system back into the community. It is something that has long term, lasting effects with a goal of individuals becoming the best version of themselves. Creating a better life is a continual process that is made up of many choices. Choosing to be proactive with reentry planning prior to release from incarceration provides tools and resources to help set a foundation on which future successes can be built.
