Reentry Resource Guide

Using Community Resources

The ACE Leon County Human Services Resource Guide: Community Resources to Assist Transition to Reentry is designed to provide inmates, formerly incarcerated people, counselors, social service providers, probation officers, teachers and community members with information about the many resources available in Leon County. 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.

Planning for a Successful Transition

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.
