WHO IS TRC: The REENTRY Center of Brevard (TRC) will help returning citizens from incarceration with assistance for successful re-entry into our community. This Re-entry initiative will allow returning citizens access to vital post-release services (e.g., housing, employment, cognitive-behavioral intervention, health care, job placement and training, mentoring, and counseling) with the intent of helping them successfully transition back into the community through a continuum of care that will offer returning citizens support to succeed. The REENTRY Center of Brevard Portal staff will also contact inmates releasing to Brevard County prior to release to begin the re-entry transition planning. The primary outcome of The REENTRY Center of Brevard Portal is to increase public safety by reducing recidivism.
