W3.CSS The St. Vincent de Paul Rentry Conference is an interfaith group who provide assistance to men and women recently released from prison. The mission is to support ex-offenders in various ways so that they have a successful transition back into society. Many members of this conference have been formerly incarcerated or have had family incarcerated. This way, the conference members better understand the unique challenges of reentry and can provide resources to match ex-offender's needs. This is an all volunteer group that started in Ada County and has just expanded to Canyon County in 2018.

Home Visits

The heart of our ministry is the home visit. Since we began our home visits in July 2013 we have made over 2,000 home visits. In FY 2018 we made 567 home visits. We go in pairs of two out and meet the individual wherever they are living or staying. We listen to their needs and struggles. From there, we can help in various ways. Primarily this is rent assistance, clothing or merchandise vouchers for our thrift stores, and transportation help such as a 30 day bus pass or a bicycle. We also bring a wealth of information on other resources and can provide referrals to many different organizations to match the individual's needs.

Help Line

If you are recently released from prison and in need of assistance, please call our help line. Make sure to clearly state that you are looking for a reentry home visit. That way we can connect you with the correct home visit conference.

Breaking the Chain of Recidivism

Recidivism is a major issue in Idaho throughout America. In three years, 66% of released inmates are rearrested. This is an alarming statistic that we are committed to change. When provide assistance through the Reentry Conference and our other Reentry Services, we make a real impact in peoples lives and cut down on this rate.
