Re-entry Services

Service navigation helps adults returning to the community from prison access critical services and resources, such as: housing, food, training, education, employment, public assistance, family relationships, health care, the court system, and transportation.

Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) is a team of community volunteers who provide consistent and caring support for a full year after release from prison. Volunteers are local people who meet weekly with program participants to help them achieve success and avoid returning to prison.

Service Navigation

A key component of all reentry services, service navigation supports the individual returning to the community from incarceration to access the help they need to develop a positive connection to the community and address obstacles to re-integration. The LRC reentry team collaborates closely with multiple service partners in the Lamoille Valley community.

Circles of Support and Accountability

aka CoSA
Formerly incarcerated individuals who are released on furlough status and are regarded by VT Department of Corrections as at high or moderate risk for re-offense are given the opportunity to participate in CoSA in addition to service navigation. CoSA are teams of community volunteers committed to supporting the formerly incarcerated individual for a full year after their release through weekly meetings and contact in the community.

Restorative Reintegration Panels

These panels meet with the formerly incarcerated individual twice monthly for a minimum of three months after their release to help them establish and follow through on goals to reintegrate back into the community and become engaged citizens.
