CAPITAL AREA REENTRY
Capital Area Reentry Council (CARC) is an organized network of individuals and agencies that provide supervision and coordinate innovative responses to the reintegration of offenders/formerly incarcerated individuals at the local level using existing program services. CARC will help bring together all stakeholders who could aid and resources to help offenders/formerly incarcerated individuals to become productive citizens, reduce recidivism and victimization.
The Capital Area Reentry Council will encompass a wide range of local faith, non-profit, government and business leaders and formerly incarcerated individuals who communicate identified resource gaps and where possible respond to these gaps with local resources. Additionally, service providers will consist of local and faith-based community organizations (non-profits, grassroots agencies, churches, ministries, etc.) that offer direct services to offenders/formerly incarcerated individuals (returning citizens) in areas of need such as temporary shelter, permanent housing, employment services, food, clothing, vocational training, transportation, substance abuse and mental health treatment, mentoring programs and any other supportive services.
