What is Reentry?
Reentry is a term used to describes both the return of formerly incarcerated people to the community as well as the programs that help them reintegrate into communities.
Reentry programs address a variety problems that the formerly incarcerated may be experiencing.
Our goal at the Florida Justice Center is to provide a holistic approach that helps allows individuals to successfully return to society while simultaneously addressing their specific needs.
How FLJC Helps
At the FLJC, we recognize that each client has distinct needs that must be addressed through personalized services.
Using empirical data, modern evidence-based case management practices, and skilled licensed mental health practitioners, we develop personalized treatment and success plans to aid each client in navigating their unique reentry experience.
What Problems do Returning Citizens Face?
Some barriers to successful reentry include, but are not limited to:
- Inability to access medical care
- Mental illness
- Lack of transportation
- Public assistance bans
- Substance abuse
- Difficulty obtaining identification
- Legal barriers including outstanding fines/fees, voting rights, and probation
These problems only represent a small fraction of the obstacles faced during the reintegration process. Without the proper resources, justice-involved people are often unable to succeed and face reincarceration.
