Supporting innovation in reentry

Re-entry represents a critical juncture in the criminal justice pipeline. The support systems that are available  to  an  individual (e.g., assistance  with employment,  drug  rehabilitation,  housing,  and education programs) can mean the difference between effectively re-entering his or her community and returning to prison. Recognizing this opportunity, Alameda County Probation Department has partnered with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to implement a series of innovative strategies called “Pathways Home.”  The  Pathways Home program is designed to reduce recidivism among high-risk clients returning to Alameda County from state prison by  initiating  case  planning, service  referrals,  and  reentry  preparation  for  clients before they  leave prison and continuing that support throughout the probation supervision period.
