The more access people with criminal histories have to community services, the less likely they are to re-offend. The more we as a society are able to reduce recidivism, the safer and more productive our community will be for all of us.

Leon County Human Services Resources Guide

The resources included in this resource guide address the myriad needs of people who are re-entering society from incarceration: those who are ready to make positive changes, find employment, secure a place to live, and those who may need medical, substance abuse, mental health and other counseling services.


The brochures below are designed to assist those interested in learning more about incarceration and reentry for individuals with a criminal conviction.
