There are system requirements every user must meet. Going through the guide and watching it on YouTube will be helpful in advance of the meeting.

The United States Department of Justice has designated April 26th through the 30th as reentry week. The purpose is to bring awareness and overcome barriers to individuals returning to their communities from detention and incarceration.  A series of workshops and events will take place on that week.  To find out more, click here.

My Reentry Roadmap

Officers from the Reentry Support Unit and the Community Transition Center within the Collaborative Reentry Services Division teamed up to create the 34-page “My Reentry Roadmap” resource based on a 2012 Reentry Guide designed by the District Attorney’s office. The guide was modernized, updated, and modified to make it relevant and user friendly. It includes current resources and information related to 2-1-1, housing, obtaining identification(s), employment, and receiving mail, to name a few. Most of the information applies to all populations, even those not releasing to community supervision. The guide also includes planning worksheets to assist clients with successful reentry and accessing community-based resources. It is designed so each resource can be a standalone document/handout.

AB717

AB717 will require the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to provide a California Identification Card to every person released from prison.  The San Diego Reentry Roundtable is closely monitoring this endeavor to support our reentry population.
