Community Reentry Planning

We address high-risk aspects of re-entry which includes identifying the transitional stages in the process and proactively planning than implementing reactive interventions after the damage is done. By coming to game day prepared with a playbook you better position yourself for the win as opposed to trying to figure out what you should have done after you’ve already fumbled the ball costing you the big game.

Our approach implements strategies to circumvent obstacles with recovery plans that really want to reduce recidivism or the number of offenders who return to the prison system. That is why creating a Reintegration Plan is so essential to your release preparedness strategy which should begin 3-6 months prerelease and near completion within 30 days from your release date at most. This allows you to really prepare yourself for your successful encore community performance. You’ll never be too prepared to carry all that baggage you left unattended at the door in your absence.

One of the most important things to successful reentry is identifying and addressing high-risk transitions that may increase the likelihood of recidivism (returning to criminal behavior or reoffending). These transitions can be particularly challenging but proactive measures can be taken to mitigate these risks.

Here are some high-risk transitions we help you prepare for.

Housing Instability

Lack of stable housing is a significant risk factor for recidivism. Individuals may be at risk of homelessness or unstable living situations upon release. It’s crucial to secure safe and stable housing before release through transitional housing, halfway houses, or arrangements with family and friends.


Finding and maintaining employment can be challenging for formerly incarcerated individuals due to limited job prospects, gaps in work history, and employer bias. Pre-release job training, resume-building, and job placement programs can help address this risk.


Many individuals struggle with substance use issues, and the availability of drugs and alcohol in the community can be a trigger for relapse. Comprehensive substance abuse treatment and recovery support programs will be in place before release.

Mental Health

Individuals with mental health issues may face difficulties accessing necessary treatment and support upon release. A plan will be in place to connect with mental health services and medication management as needed.

Social Connections

Isolation and a lack of positive social connections can increase the risk of recidivism. We encourage involvement in support groups, mentorship programs, and community organizations that can provide a sense of belonging and support.

Basic Needs

Meeting basic needs such as food, clothing, and transportation can be challenging for those reentering the community. E We ensure access to food assistance programs, clothing resources, and transportation options.


Failure to meet legal obligations, such as probation or parole requirements, can lead to re-incarceration. We ensure individuals understand their legal responsibilities and provide support in fulfilling them.


Reconnecting with old acquaintances involved in criminal activities can lead to reoffending. We encourage and help you build positive social networks and mentorship to counteract negative influences.

Family Matters

Reuniting with family members can be emotionally complex, and strained family relationships can contribute to recidivism. Family counseling and communication skills training may be included if desired.


Financial challenges can increase the risk of criminal activity. Assistance with financial planning, access to banking services, and financial literacy programs can help individuals manage their finances responsibly.


Lack of education or job skills can limit opportunities for stable employment. Support individuals in pursuing educational opportunities and vocational training.

Crisis Situations

Individuals may encounter unexpected crises or emergencies that can disrupt their reentry process. Develop a crisis plan and provide information about emergency resources and contacts.

Community Integration

Ensure individuals are aware of community resources, such as local social services, healthcare providers, and faith-based organizations, that can offer assistance and support during their transition.

Peer Support & Advocacy

Peer advocates who have successfully reintegrated into the community provide guidance, support, and role modeling for individuals reentering society.

We’ll help you create a comprehensive reentry plan to address these high-risk transitions and involve collaboration between correctional facilities, probation or parole officers, social services agencies, and community organizations. By addressing these challenges proactively, the chances of successful community reentry and reduced recidivism are significantly improved.
