Family ReEntry SM is:

Family ReEntry’s mission is to break cycles of violence, crime and incarceration by providing client-centered interventions and support services to empower and strengthen individuals, families and communities.

The Problem

Unprecedented numbers of people are involved in the criminal justice system. There are over 12,000 Returning Citizens released from prison each year in Connecticut. Most of them face challenges managing the most basic ingredients for successful reintegration into society. This includes finding employment and housing, reconnecting with their families and communities, and accessing substance abuse and behavioral health services.

Our Vision

Healthy Supportive Communities Free from Crime and Violence Strong Resilient Individuals and Family/Relational Systems To Create Social Innovation To Develop and Operate Effective Programs To Inform Policy and Practice with Sound Research To Provide Education and Advocacy

Core Operating Values

Our values are C.L.E.A.R.: Clients – We justify our existence by serving our clients well. Leadership – We lead with integrity. Excellence – We strive to be the best in everything we do. Accountability – We are accountable for our actions. Respect – We respect all individuals and value diversity.

Intended Impact

Breaking the Intergenerational Cycle of Crime, Abuse and Incarceration Give Voice to Experience of Returning Citizens and Their Families Empower Individuals as Productive and Responsible Citizens Strengthen Families, Build Community Increase Public Safety Decrease Financial and Social Costs and Consequences
