SERVICE CLASSIFICATIONS

  • Community Assessment: Reentry AfterCare provides contractual technical training and development for undertaking community assessments; the community assessment focuses on identifying both assets and needs.

    Resource availability and location is a prominent challenge with accessing and providing services to returning citizens. Knowing what resources exists and where they are located are vital in accessing these services.

    Reentry AfterCare engages in community assessment with preparing communities and collaborative partnerships to deliver reentry strategies to volunteers, mentors, coalitions, and government agencies.

    We utilize these community assessments to indentify the “mission gaps” in existing resources and services, and develop strategies to “close the mission gap” to enhance reentry initiatives which benefit returning citizens, service providers, community coalitions, and all stakeholders.


  • Training and Development: Reentry AfterCare provides contractual technical training and development for community and faith-based organizations, businesses, colleges, universities, and government agencies that allow stakeholders to acquire state-of-the-art reentry strategies and knowledge of best practices. Reentry Aftercare training allows stakeholders to identify the current gaps in their reentry strategy and presents a developmental vision for reentry that seeks to fill those gaps and sustain the overall strategy to build the capacity to effectively, safely, and efficiently reintegrate those formerly incarcerated into society as returning citizens.


  • Consulting and Advising: Reentry AfterCare provides contractual consulting and advising services that may include research activities, project planning and management, and evaluation and assessment needs. These services can be characterized as short-term activities, 1-6 months in length, and will encompass advising and mentoring stakeholders on reentry strategies, program development, and policy initiatives.


  • Social Policy Development: Reentry AfterCare develops and publishes policy recommendations and statements identifying best practices developed from research and program effectiveness; and actively engages in social policy change to remove structural policy impediments which are barriers to successful reentry and reintegration. Reentry AfterCare policy recommendations and statements are presented in research profiles, project reports, information alerts, training workshops, and other forms of publications. These are primarily offered through Reentry AfterCare’s website in digital form.
