Once upon a time, during a pandemic, a group of folks decided the timing was perfect to start Reentry St. Louis - an idea that had been mulled over for several years. It's been a winding road to get where we are today - a legitimate 501(c)(3). We may be in our infancy, but we have big dreams.
We believe that all justice involved people deserve fair opportunities to succeed in society. We believe justice involved individuals are capable of success with proper support. We believe our communities have a critical role in the success of the justice involved population and reducing recidivism. We believe our communities will prosper when we work collaboratively to support those that have been justice involved.
We will accomplish our vision by providing services for people reentering society that assist them in becoming successful citizens. We will do this through Education, Employment, and Empowerment programs that focus on the individual’s need. We will implement research based programs and will collaborate with the community and other reentry organizations to hone “best-practices” in reentry services and recidivism reduction.
Reentry St. Louis is happy to assist anyone in need of reentry assistance.
