One Stop Reentry Center
Reentry Specialists

Reentry is the release planning process all offenders will go through including the continuation of services from the Institution to the community. The goal of reentry is to increase public safety and reduce recidivism by developing a release plan that best fits the offender’s needs. This is achieved through the prioritized provision and coordination of services necessary to facilitate a seamless transition of an offender from an Institution to the community. This process starts when the individual enters the Institution and continues when they are released into the community. Release planning includes several aspects such as treatment, housing, supervision, employment, education, healthcare, and other services. By assessing the individual’s risk for recidivism and treatment needs, a comprehensive transition plan will be developed. By assessing each individual’s risk to the community and establishing services based on identified needs, those with the highest risk will receive the highest level of services. Establishing services to address the offender's identified needs in the community is a collaborative effort between state and local agencies.

In District 4 (Ada, Elmore, Valley, Boise Counties) Idaho Department of Correction has created a One Stop Re-Entry Center. This center houses IDOC staff and various community partners all working to help people gain access to services under one roof. Anyone coming out of prison or jail needing assistance are welcome to visit and gather information and resources to help achieve goals. There are computers in the lobby linked to the Idaho Department of Labor to assist with job search and resume writing. Our goal is to provide information, support, and tools to help people returning to the community. Upon release, IDOC staff at the One Stop Reentry Center and our community partners are there to encourage the offender to follow through with their release plan and collaborate with their Parole Officer to help set and meet new goals. The One Stop Re-Entry Center houses community partners on a continuous revolving schedule. This helps alleviate many obstacles most offenders face upon release. Having their needs met under one roof as well as working collaboratively with various resources helps bridge the gap between corrections and communities. For more information, please call the phone number listed below or visit the Center for assistance and information.

In other Districts throughout the State, there are Recovery Center’s of Idaho available to help with need of people returning to the local community. They offer many services such as job search, employment, treatment, healthcare, and other services. In the Reentry Summary Guide (See Link below) you will find on page 19 a listing of the locations of these Recovery Centers.
