A Local Reentry Council is an organized network of individuals and agencies that provide support and the coordination of services for justice involved individuals.
The Criminal Justice Resource Center (CJRC) has been designated as the intermediary agency for the Durham Local Reentry Council. The role of the intermediary agency is to bring organizations together to facilitate the work, advocacy and the coordination of services for justice involved individuals.
Durham's vision for reentry is to provide opportunities for justice involved individuals to successfully connect as productive members of society. Through active partnerships with our stakeholders, the Local Reentry Council will contribute to safer communities and an enhanced quality of life for justice involved citizens.
The Durham Local Reentry Council's mission is to demonstrate a holisitic and systematic approach that seeks to reduce the likelihood of additional criminal behavior by providing unwavering community support for justice involved citizens.
The goal of the Local Reentry Council is to connect individuals with services and support to assist them in a successful transition and to build capacity at the local level to reduce recidivism.
