Our Reentry Discharge Planner is contracted with the state’s Department of Corrections and housed partially in the prison. They build comprehensive reentry plans for people near release, who have been flagged for gang involvement. Moreover, as a member of the Rhode Island Re-Entry Collaborative, we work closely with other community partners to provide wrap around re-entry services to returning citizens.
ri re-entry collaborative (RRC)
The RI Reentry Collaborative (RRC) is a partnership among community-based organizations designed to serve people transitioning from prison back to communities in the Providence metro area.
The core partner organizations of the RRC include the Amos House, Center for Health and Justice Transformation, the Reentry Campus Program, the Institute with hopes to expand the number of partners.
With the overall goal to prevent re-arrests and reduce recidivism, the RRC’s long-term vision is to provide a more comprehensive, community-based reentry system in the state of Rhode Island, using best practices to improve the quality and stability of life for people returning to the community from incarceration.
