ReEntry Programs help ex-offenders and felons on probation get jobs, find housing and network with others who may be in a similar situation. Some Re-entry programs may also be associated with religious and spiritual organizations.
A reentry program may be run by a state government, a local nonprofit or even for profit entity and they vary widely in the assistance they can provide.

Arkansas Department of Corrections
The mission of the Arkansas Department of Correction is to provide public safety by carrying out the mandate of the courts, provide a safe humane environment for staff and inmates, strengthen the work ethic through teaching of good habits, and provide opportunities for staff and inmates to improve spiritually, mentally, and physically.
Our House empowers homeless and near-homeless families and individuals to succeed in the workforce, in school, and in life through hard work, wise decision-making, and active participation in the community.
Central Arkansas ReEntry Coalition is a group of concerned agencies and citizens which began working working collaboratively in 2009 to assist citizens returning from incarceration to Lonoke and Pulaski Counties as they reenter society and reconnect with family while starting over in order to lead productive lives.

Prison Fellowship staff and volunteers are devoted to helping prepare men and women to leave prison with a positive outlook—ready to succeed.
