Re-entry is not an option, but a reality!!!
The vast majority of juvenile offenders placed in confinement, close to a 100%, are eventually released to a community.
What is re-entry?
Simply put, re-entry is the transition of a person from confinement (i.e. prison) back to the community. Following release, these individuals face a multitude of unique issues and obstacles. DJJ strives to remove these hurdles for the youth returning to the community by providing programs and services that educate, prepare, and equip these youth to succeed as productive and contributing members of society.
DJJ’s Re-entry Webpage . . .
This webpage is designed to provide DJJ’s staff, the families and friends of the youth we serve, and the general public with an historical prospective on re-entry; information on DJJ’s re-entry programs, resources, and partnerships; agency contact information; and, stories highlighting youth and agency successes. Monthly updates will be posted on this page to report new developments and accomplishments related to DJJ’s re-entry initiative.
