Reentry Hubs

Reentry Hubs have been established in existing designated institutions and provide relevant services specifically to inmates who are within four years of release and who demonstrate a willingness to maintain appropriate behavior to take advantage of these services.

Reentry Hub programming is geared to ensure that, upon release, offenders are ready for the transition back into society. The core of Reentry Hub programming is Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) programming, an evidence-based program designed for inmates who have a moderate-to-high risk to reoffend, as assessed by the California Static Risk Assessment (CSRA), and who have an assessed criminogenic need, as identified by the Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions (COMPAS) and/or other assessment(s) identified by CDCR. CBT programs address the following major areas:

  • Substance Abuse
  • Criminal Thinking
  • Anger Management
  • Family relationships

In addition, Reentry Hubs offer the California Identification Card (Cal-ID) Program to ensure offenders obtain a valid California identification card upon release, which is critical for employment and other services. At Reentry Hub locations a broad range of Academic and Career Technical Education programs give inmates opportunities for obtaining academic degrees and trade certifications to prepare them for entry-level jobs and careers. The Transitions Program is also offered to provide inmates with job readiness and search skills and practical financial literacy to facilitate successful reentry into their communities. For more information about these programs, please refer to our other In-Prison and Community and Reentry Services.
