Navajo County RE:entry Project is a regional support system that promotes successful reintegration of formerly incarcerated individuals in a way that improves community safety by reducing criminal behavior.
All formerly incarcerated individuals returning to Navajo County will have every opportunity for community support, healthy relationships, and a hopeful future.
The Navajo County RE:entry Project provides supportive services, information referrals, and mentor pairing for individuals returning to the community from incarceration. Providing these supportive services gives individuals the guidance they need to empower themselves to overcome potential barriers and achieve their goals.
The Community Mentorship Program is a tremendously successful program in other counties. It offers participants case plan management and placement with a volunteer coach trained to provide resource referrals, assist with goal completion, and give emotional support.
The Navajo County RE:entry Project models the successful, evidence-based approach from Yavapai Reentry Project. We partner with their staff for training and accountability. To learn more about our program, take a look at our partner’s video.
To help establish an immediate sense of security and belonging each participant who enrolls in the Navajo County Re:entry Project is given a basket which includes toiletries and other necessary products.
The challenges facing community members returning from incarceration are numerous and complex. Community conversations on poverty, trauma-informed care, reentry and community roadblocks are provided for community members to increase their understanding of these complexities.
Each mentor has access to an extensive guide of services and resources to help a participant navigate their road to success.
During the mentoring process. we offer peer support and groups for mentors to discuss challenges and solutions. We also offer a Mentors Coaching Mentors program to assist new volunteers in the process.
