Your generous contribution directly supports second chances

 
As a Longmont native, Teddy first became a member of TRI in May of 2022. He was worried about starting fresh in a place where most of his troubles began. He started working with our peer mentors who understood his concerns – because they experienced reentry too.
 
Over time Teddy realized it’s possible to rebuild his life in his hometown – Longmont. Teddy started doing healthy group activities and individual counseling. He increased awareness of his own triggers, emotions, and resulting behaviors – so when he did run into “old friends,” he was able to make skillful decisions.
 
Your support makes second chances, like Teddy’s, possible.

What is The Reentry Initiative?

Founded in 2016, The Reentry Initiative is recognized for its unique, evidence-based process supporting individuals who are reentering the community from incarceration. In just five short years, TRI has evolved into a full-service organization.  Prior to COVID we offered a six-month pre-release course inside Denver Women’s Correctional Facility along with trauma and addiction treatment and other mental health counseling, which we will continue as soon as we are allowed back into the facility. At our Welcome Back Center in Longmont, we support both men and women by offering post-release wraparound services.

Based in Boulder County, Colorado, The Reentry Initiative empowers individuals as they transition from incarceration to a fulfilling and meaningful life. TRI is 1 of 19 reentry programs in Colorado funded by WAGEES to work with men and women parolees.  Upon release we provide mental health and substance abuse treatment, classes on self-sufficiency and connect participants with mentors as well as housing, transportation, and employment. TRI is one of two programs in the state working with female inmates and the only one in Boulder County offering comprehensive wraparound services.
