Resources for Human Development has established a variety of programs improving the lives of men and women who are reintegrating into society after incarceration.  RHD recognizes that second chances are often difficult to come by, so our priority is to help provide the opportunities.

Our person-centered approach allows us to foster several programs such as C.O.R.E., a long-term (6-month) community reintegration recovery program for individuals with mental health and substance abuse, which works with returning citizens as they prepare for re-entry into society and a new start.

C.O.R.E. Values

When Dan first arrived at C.O.R.E., he thought it was too good to be true. "People were kind to me ... it kind of freaked me out," he said. At C.O.R.E., returning citizens find support in working on social and life skills as they reintegrate into society after adjudication. Read about Dan, Michael and Dex at C.O.R.E. here.

We're committed to starting programs that work with returning citizens from the ground up - such as I'm FREE, a new program growing in our New Beginnings Nonprofit Incubator.
With more than two decades of experience assisting returning citizens, RHD partners with returning citizens to promote independence, responsibility and continual growth.

You can find more information on these and other programs working returning citizens in the list provided below.
