Our Story

The Reentry Council, established by Attorney General Holder in January 2011, represents a significant executive branch commitment to the improvement of policies to help break barriers. We work with reentry in all aspects of life from leaving the prison system to obtaining proper health care, to assisting with family stability in all areas of life. We assist the whole being in order to help produce more productive returning citizens.

A chief focus of the Re-Entry Council is to remove barriers to successful reentry, so that motivated individuals – who have served their time and paid their debts – are able to:

  • Compete for a job
  • Attain stable housing
  • Support their children and their families
  • Contribute to their communities
  • Reduce community crime rate and reduce collateral cost of incarceration

The Craven-Pamlico Re-Entry Council believes that those returning from incarceration to society should have a healthy, stable transition.
