Reentry Program

The City of Rochester’s Reentry program is designed to help break the cycle of recidivism and intergenerational incarceration.

The City’s Reentry Coordinator provides those who are returning to city neighborhoods from the Criminal Justice System with the critical resources and services necessary to navigate and transition from prison to a life of freedom. The team is works with other reentry agencies to prevent individuals from reoffending and re-engaging in criminal activity.

The program offers a holistic approach addressing the various concerns incarcerated residents and former criminal offenders have in returning to friends, family or neighborhoods that had a negative impact: conflict-resolution skills, housing, addiction counseling, employment opportunities, and how to build positive relationships.
