Reentry Collaborative

What is the Reentry Collaborative?

The MCOER works with a variety of community stakeholders to provide programming and services to the men and women who are returning to Montgomery County from state and local prisons and jails. The MCOER Reentry Collaborative serves as a community education assembly which promotes reentry provider networking, organizational support via resource building, and long-term sustainability through leveraged partnerships. 
Evidenced-based strategies are shared to enhance program standards, service delivery, and improve measurable outcomes. The Reentry Collaborative is comprised of over 68 service providers and advocates working cooperatively with the MCOER to provide programs and services that minimize barriers to successful reentry and promote a reduction in recidivism.
