What is The Reentry Initiative?

The Reentry Initiative is a non-profit organization based in Boulder County, Colorado that offers effective pre- and post-release programs and support to offenders in state correctional facilities. We empower individuals as they transition from incarceration to a fulfilling and meaningful life through gender-specific services.

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.
