Community and Faith-Based Reentry Coalitions Network
The Community and Faith-Based Reentry Coalitions Network brings together community and faith-based collaboratives across Los Angeles County to share resources and peer-to-peer knowledge exchange in order to improve outcomes for those returning from incarceration, and increase the safety of their communities.
Co-Chaired by the Violence Prevention Coalition and Los Angeles Metropolitan Churches, the Network supports the emergence and the growth of reentry collaboratives in communities across Los Angeles. It has developed and produced a Framework for connecting these local collaborations into a collective, county-wide voice, as well as a toolkit for developing local Reentry Resource Fairs. Co-Chairs for the Network are Kaile Shilling of the Violence Prevention Coalition and Cheryl Branch of Los Angeles Metropolitan Churches.
Member Organizations of the Network include: Pasadena/Altadena Reintegration Council, El Monte Resource Fair, San Gabriel Valley Resource Fair, Monrovia/Duarte Community Mediation Team, Lancaster Reentry, Welcome Home, Inglewood, READY, South Los Angeles
