Communication, Collaboration, & Capacity-Building to Improve Reentry Outcomes in Philadelphia

The barriers and collateral consequences faced by returning citizens are many, the services and resources meant to support them in overcoming those barriers are often in siloes, and no single agency can address every need of every returning citizen. The Philadelphia Reentry Coalition brings reentry partners together to increase collaboration, reduce duplication, align existing efforts and strengthen stakeholders’ capacity to improve their own reentry programs. The Coalition also creates a permanent space to ensure perpetual communication among participating organizations even through administration, structural, and personnel changes.

In 2015, the Coalition engaged in an inclusive strategic planning process which resulted in Home for Good: A 5-Year Countywide Plan to Improve Reentry in Philadelphia.

Our 103 members include local, state, and federal government agencies, community-based service providers, researchers, advocates, returning citizens, faith-based groups, and others who partner as Coalition members.
