From the Mayor's Office for the Reentry of Exoffenders. The One Stop Center (OSC) is now open and able to assist all ex-offenders, whether they're from federal, state or county prison. The current Mayor is not perfect, however every now and then he hits a homerun. In my book this is one of the missing links in the overall violence chain.

good news

but I wonder how recently released 'offenders' will learn about this program. It's my understanding that, unless you're released on parole, you don't receive the guidance or support that could help connect people to these types of programs. I hope they have folks working in the prisons that can help.. too often this lack of counseling practically guarantees a return to jail after release.

Agreed

but there are a few programs in place for re-entry that aim to get people linked before they get out. The Prison to Community Program for instance, does re-entry but a large part of their work is identifying people in prison and linking them to re-entry programs on the outside. I believe prison to community is working with Street's new reentry program.

re-entry program

I'm just wondering how is it that one get to be in the re-entry program since I am just hearing about this from my wife. I have been released since july 2010 and have also been trying to find a job which have been difficult. So tell me is this re-entry program for me? If so how do i go about entering it, I would appreciate all the help I can get.

I think you can do this and

I think you can do this and it certainly will be a good work for you, you shouldn't have no worry because of this.
