Returning CitizensPrison Reentry

The process of reentry is very complex. Successful reentry into the community is dependent on a multipronged approach, including collaborations between state and municipal governments, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, families, residents and justice-involved people. The body of Christ has a unique opportunity to support people reentering the community after incarceration.

Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

– Hebrews 13:3
