Prisoner Re-Entry

Norfolk Re-Entry T.E.A.M.

  • Transition forward
  • Engage more
  • Achieve independence
  • Move beyond

Transitioning into the community after being convicted of criminal charges or incarceration can present a variety of challenges. We know that if people have help in the beginning it improves their chances of success dramatically and that's better for you, your family and the community. Additionally, people who have been previously involved in the criminal justice system need on-going support regardless if they have ever served time in jail or prison or the length of time passed since conviction.

The Norfolk Department of Human Services uses a community-based approach to integrate human services and public safety. We work with City of Norfolk residents who have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony charge.
