Reentry Network

Reentry Network

On March 1, 2011, the Board of Supervisors established a cross-system reentry network to develop and implement a reentry plan for the county.  The Reentry Network is led by an eight-member governance team, which is responsible for the vision, direction, and accountability of the group.  Network membership is open to any individuals and organizations providing reentry services or with interest in supporting the reentry efforts in Santa Clara County. 

Since August 2011, the Reentry Network has been meeting on a quarterly basis with the focus of implementing policy and procedure changes that will better assist with a successful reentry transition.  Network members provide expertise, operations support, and guidance to the governance team.

Build safer communities and strengthen families through successful reintegration and reentry of formerly incarcerated individuals back into Santa Clara County.

To reduce recidivism by using evidence-based practices in implementing a seamless system of services, supports, and supervision.

The Santa Clara County Reentry Network is guided by the following principles and values:

  • Reentry and reintegration begin while the individual is incarcerated.
  • Evidence-based practices are utilized when developing programs and policies.
  • Collaboration, coordination, information, and communication are critical to the success and sustainability of the Reentry Network.
  • High – to moderate-risk formerly incarcerated individuals are targeted through the use of validated assessment tools.
  • Assessment and case management tools targeting continuous reentry planning are incorporated at the point of admission to the criminal justice system and continue to be used through pre- and post-release.
  • The strategic plan is gender-responsive, trauma-informed, and culturally competent.
