Cabarrus County Community Reentry
Let's start moving forward
The purpose of the Cabarrus County Community Reentry Program is to create a process that will provide support services and assist individuals returning from incarceration or treatment. Individuals who are overcoming the challenges associated with navigating barriers to employment, education, health, sobriety to reduce recidivism and relapse will receive wrap-around services provided through our Peer Support program that will empower participants in developing a productive life in our community.
Barriers individuals encounter following release are often crippling and can contribute to the cycle of recidivism which makes it difficult for even the most well-intentioned individual to stay on the right path and out of the criminal justice system. To overcome these barriers Opportunity House and AYA House, along with several other community providers have partnered together to provide services in the following areas:
Obtaining personal documents (ID, Social Security Card, Birth Certificate)
Referral to community resources for physical health, substance abuse or mental health concerns, vocational assistance, and housing
Opportunities for education, life skills, and job readiness training
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Trauma informed therapy
Group and individual counseling
Substance abuse counseling
How do I get started
