YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Community Resources

Immediate Help

Individuals returning from a period of incarceration must make sure they have access to basic resources in order to make a successful transition. These include:

  • Government Identification
  • Housing
  • Food
  • Healthcare
  • Transportation
  • Friends/mentors
  • Vocational training

If you or a loved one need help securing any of the above, REAP staff and volunteers will provide referral services to quickly connect you with the relevant community providers to meet your needs.
