What is The Reentry Initiative?

Founded in 2016, The Reentry Initiative is recognized for its unique process supporting individuals who are reentering the community from incarceration. In just 3 short years ago, TRI has evolved into a full-service organization that offers a six-month pre-release course inside Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, followed by post-release wraparound transitional services. Our Welcome Back Center provides these services as well as the TRI House which houses women on parole.

 

Based in Boulder County, Colorado, The Reentry Initiative is a non-profit organization empowering individuals as they transition from incarceration to a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Why do we do what we do?

Because . . . No matter what mistakes people have made, they can positively transform their lives and regain respect.
We believe:
  • if given support, treatment and responsibility, people can break the cycle of crime and incarceration.
  • that with the tools, individuals can change their lives, their communities and their stories.
  • in justice that restores and heals.

Simply punishing the broken—walking away from them or hiding them from sight–only ensures that they remain broken, and we do too. There is no wholeness outside of our reciprocal humanity.
