Reentry Hubs

Reentry Hub programming is geared to ensure that, upon release, offenders are ready for the transition back into society. Reentry Hubs are established in designated institutions, and offered to inmates who are within four years of release and who meet the eligibility requirements. Participating offenders are placed into the appropriate programming according to the results of their assessments. Their criminogenic needs are assessed by taking the California Static Risk Assessment (CSRA), and the Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions (COMPAS).

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) program services are also offered to inmates housed in designated Reentry Hub Facilities. CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties. CBT modalities are offered in the following areas:

  • Substance Use Disorder Treatment
  • Criminal Thinking
  • Anger Management
  • Family Relations

Academic and CTE programs give inmates opportunities for obtaining academic degrees and trade certifications to prepare them for entry-level jobs and careers.

The Transitions program provides inmates with job readiness, job search skills, and practical financial literacy to facilitate a successful reentry into their communities.

The California Identification Card (Cal-ID) Program ensure offenders obtain a valid California identification card upon release, which is critical for employment and other services.

For more information about these programs, please refer to our other In-Prison and Community and Reentry Services.
