Reentry Programs - Overview

St. Vincent de Paul Reentry Programs/Services

 

Thousands of men and women are released from prison and jails in Idaho every year and must go through the process of reintegration into society. This is a difficult process for so many returning citizens.

First: The Reentry Conference is an interfaith group dedicated to provide services to women and men recently released from prison or jail. They visit returning citizens and offer an understanding ear and referrals, as well as rent, clothing and transportation support. Currently, this group works with returning citizens in Ada County and Canyon County. Click here to learn more.

Second: Reentry Services is a nexus of services specifically for returning citizens. This is at our office at 8620 W. Emerald, Suite 140. Here we offer pickup, first day out resources, and employment services. Click here to learn more.

Third: Systemic Change of Idaho The obstacles to success for returning citizens can be daunting: housing, transportation, employment, parole restrictions, self-esteem, developing positive family and friend environments, etc. St. Vincent de Paul sponsors Systemic Change of Idaho, a group that works to improve conditions for returning citizens and thereby improve their chances of success in society. This is an advocacy group working to build understanding and affect change in Idaho to bring about better outcomes in our penal system. Click here to learn more.

Last year, St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho made 8,470 Home Visits. One of those was Jennifer. Living on a fixed income, just one financial mistake put her on the brink of homelessness. That's when St. Vincent de Paul stepped in, assisting with her rent that month. Watch her story to see how we work to keep our most vulnerable community members from falling through the cracks. We need your help to provide a safety net for our neighbors in need! Visit our website www.svdpid.org to donate in the #avenuesforhope campaign! The first $3,000 are matched dollar for dollar by the Home Partnership Foundation Avenues for Hope Idaho Housing and Finance Association
