RVRC Re-Entry Project
This program is a comprehensive approach
toward assisting transitioning offenders to
succeed in our community. We aim to work
with participants in a way that respects
both their goals as well as their
experiences. By providing incoming
participants with the resources necessary
to achieve their goals and the support
that they require through appropriate
case management, we hope to empower
participants to lead successful and
productive lives within their community.
