Oregon ReEntry Programs

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.
