What is the Reentry Collaborative?
The Montgomery County Office of Reentry 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 Montgomery County 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. The collaborative body is comprised of service providers and advocates working cooperatively with the Montgomery County Office of Reentry to promote programs, services, and partnerships that minimize barriers to successful reentry and promote a reduction in recidivism. We would like to invite agencies, organizations, community partners, and advocates seeking to provide services to returning citizens and their families, to contact the Montgomery County Office of Reentry for meeting schedule and connection to the Montgomery County Reentry Collaborative.
How do I get Involved in the Reentry Collaborative?
Any agency that provides services in the community that restored citizens and their families can utilize should participate in the Reentry Collaborative. If you are not sure – attend a meeting and make a decision based on what you learn! Contact Amy Piner at (937)496-7047 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to learn more.
You can attend the Reentry Collaborative meetings on the fourth Monday of even numbered months (February, April, June, August, and October. No December meeting due to the holidays). Schedules for all Reentry Collaborative meetings are published at the beginning of each calendar year.
