REAP Community ReEntry Information and Referral Service

Men and Women re-entering our community from years of incarceration are all starting fresh and must be equipped with the basic resources to survive and compete.  Such basic resources begin with: a government issued identification card, dependable housing, dependable food, dependable medical/mental health care, dependable transportation, healthy relationships, greater education, training and continuing cognitive behavior therapy.
