Reentry Programs in Arizona

Here are 5 non-profits organizations that assist ex-offenders finding employment in Arizona:

  • 1. Arizona Common Ground

    Our goal is to provide reentry services to medium to high-risk youth and adults once released from incarceration back to Maricopa County. We utilize evidence-based practices (EBP) to reduce recidivism rates by providing all individuals who are in our program ongoing case management, educational programming, mentoring, and workforce development. Every client that comes to our organization starts by attending our orientation and completing an application. Many clients attend our orientation for immediate resources such as bus passes, interview clothes, food assistance, housing assistance, and job leads. When clients are accepted into our Prison Reentry Program, they complete the intake process by being assessed using the LS/CMI (Level of Service Case Management Inventory) to measure their risk levels, their needs assessment, and case management plan.
