Community and Re-entry Help

Re-entry organizations, community agencies, and faith-based organizations offer help, but it varies by agency. Re-entry organizations are usually staffed by formerly incarcerated people who understand re-entry from personal experience. They may offer job training/placement, clothing, bus tokens, help getting ID docs, and other resources. Community organizations may offer food, clothing, housing assistance, job search prep and help, classes, and more. Some organizations are faith-based and founded on religious or spiritual principles. Not all require you to agree with these principles, but some do.

Take time to look at websites and make phone calls to narrow down where you want to go. Sometimes agencies don’t take walk-ins. Be sure you call first. You may need to be persistent and make several calls and visit several places before you find the right place for you. It's important to find a place where you feel comfortable and want to go for help. The right place can make a huge difference. It might make sense to start with re-entry organizations. If an organization is faith-based, we note that in parentheses. The list is in alphabetical order by city.
