Reentry Services Q & A

What are reentry services?

Reentry services are programs that aim to help those recently incarcerated transition back into society. It’s not uncommon for ex-offenders to have a hard time returning to regular life after spending time in prison. 

Their criminal history may make it hard for them to get a job, or they may suffer from a mental health condition or substance abuse problem not addressed during incarceration.  

Reentry services aid the felon’s transition back into the community, helping to prevent a return to criminal activity and reincarceration.

What are the benefits of reentry services?

Reentry services are needed because they benefit the ex-offender and their community. Some of these benefits include:

Public safety

A large percentage of felons are rearrested for new crimes within three years after their release from prison. These crimes disrupt the community and may affect the safety of the residents. 

Reentry services provide the felon with the tools necessary to prevent a return to criminal activity for survival, reducing risk of harm.

Employment

A criminal history significantly affects your ability to get a job that pays an income you can live on. Reentry services help reduce employment barriers and improve competition for employment to increase wages. 

Health

Felons may have difficulty getting the health services they need when they leave prison. They may also struggle with an addiction that can make it hard to return to regular life. 

Reentry services provide the health care felons need, often addressing the root problems of their criminal activity — mental illness, substance abuse, or both.

Education

Reentry services provide ex-offenders with opportunities to learn. Improving their education level may reduce their risk of reincarceration.

Housing

Without an income or job, ex-offenders may struggle to find stable housing. Reentry services connect those in need of housing with the community resources that offer affordable housing.
