Building successful strategies for reentry and reintegration

About Reentry

Reentry is the process by which incarcerated persons return to the community. The reentry process should begin at arrest and continue through community reintegration. 95% of the incarcerated population will eventually return to the community.

Our Vision and Mission

The vision of the Austin/Travis County Reentry Roundtable is a connected community that values and supports equity, well-being and upward mobility for persons impacted by the criminal justice system.

 

The mission of the Austin/Travis County Reentry Roundtable is to be a robust network that champions safe and healthy communities through effective reentry and reintegration of persons with justice system involvement by bringing reentry partners together to increase collaboration, reduce duplication, align efforts and strengthen the capacity of persons with justice system involvement and the reentry programs that serve them.
