Welcome to the California Reentry Council Network (CRCN)

The CRCN is a statewide network to connect local reentry councils, roundtables, and task forces to each other and to promote information and resource sharing aimed to improve reentry outcomes for people returning to local communities after release from jails and prisons.


What is a Reentry Council?

Reentry refers to the transition of individuals who are incarcerated in prisons or jails back into the community after release. Currently, there are reentry efforts emerging throughout the US and in California that employ evidence-based strategies focused on comprehensive planning and coordinated service delivery to increase the likelihood that individuals will make safe and successful transitions back into their communities after incarceration.

Reentry Councils, Partnerships, and/or Roundtables refer to groups that are organized to coordinate local reentry efforts. They may focus on: (1) sharing local reentry information and resources; (2) developing directories of local reentry services; (3) organizing collaborative reentry planning and policy development; (4) and/or encouraging public engagement in local reentry efforts. Membership in various Reentry Councils, Partnerships, and/or Roundtables may differ, though most aim to engage multiple community reentry stakeholders including local government agency leadership, community service providers, individuals who have been previously incarcerated and/or their family members, and other community leaders.
