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.

Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Washington
Our goal is to help prevent returning citizens from falling back to previous mistakes by helping them find and follow a path to a new career. We do this by creating a support network centered around volunteer mentors who work closely with returning citizens.
Our re-entry program focuses on ex-offenders that are just released from prison; we provide case management and biweekly men’s rap and women’s rap sessions. We also have transitional housing as well as a component targeting home detention.
Jericho Reentry Program
ECSM’s programs are focused on the educational needs of youth in Baltimore City. The Ark is an emergency assistance preschool for children ages 3-4 from families experiencing homelessness. The Club at Collington Square provides academic support and enrichment activities for elementary students attending their neighborhood Title 1 school through out-of-school-time programs; The Club also distributes food and clothing for neighborhood families in need through its Pantry. The Community Kitchen creates meals for the youth in ECSM’s programs.

The Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) Re-Entry Unit facilitates many collaborative activities to provide offender opportunities for successful transition from incarceration to the community. The Re-Entry Unit firmly believes that successful re-entry is a part of effective crime control.
