Reentry Recovery Communities

"My sentence really started the day I was RELEASED from prison" is a common statement we hear from people struggling to rebuild their lives after incarceration. The barriers that former inmates face can make it so difficult just to survive that many quickly return to their old habits and lives and, all to often, to prison. For men and women who are ready for change, OPCS offers an alternative. 

OPCS operates four Reentry Recovery Communities - alcohol and drug-free communities of top-quality, multi-resident housing locations - that provide a structured living environment enhanced by a rich, well-balanced assortment of support services.  Immediately upon release, individuals have housing and find support and encouragement from peers and staff.  Substance abuse counseling, recovery support and employment assistance give each client the tools to tackle barriers to employment and housing and reenter the community with a foundation in recovery, employment and permanent housing. 

The wide range of services offered allow each person the opportunity to personalize their plan towards independence which meets their individual needs. Working closely with multiple federal, city, county and community partners, we are able to offer an array of enhanced and graduated supportive services, which include:

  • Well-furnished housing units with all the comforts of home
  • Properties located near city bus lines
  • Individualized case management
  • Staff on site 24 hours for support and guidance
  • Substance abuse counseling and recovery support
  • Employability skills training
  • Employment placement
  • Family reunification
  • Assistance with obtaining public benefits and
  • Mentoring
