Re-entry Steering Committee
A key component of avoiding recidivism and providing a successful future for returning citizens is a well-coordinated Re-entry option for those completing their sentences. The Re-entry Steering Committee coordinates on a range of issues encountered by persons returning from periods of incarceration, from housing, to behavioral health, to job placement. CJCC has seen Re-entry as a key focus committee since inception.

CJCC’s Re-entry Steering Committee is comprised of federal and local stakeholders engaged in activities to develop a comprehensive prisoner re-entry strategy with a focus on high risk offenders. The Committee’s goal is to continue to identify and monitor the status of re-entry services in the District, and respond with collaborative strategic initiatives that will address any identified service gaps or deficiencies.
