The Reentry Court team will assess and identify barriers and needs of high risk offenders recently released from the Federal Bureau of Prisons custody into our communities. The Reentry Court participants will be linked with services specific to their needs including; treatment, employment, life skills training, and education programs in order to reduce the likelihood of recidivism and promote successful reintegration into the community.
