Reentry Services for Individuals Who Are Justice Involved
In March 2017, Governor Doug Ducey, the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation & Reentry, and DES launched the Second Chance Initiative, which seeks to provide individuals with a real second chance after incarceration. Second Chance Centers provide inmates with workforce development services to prepare them for a successful reentry into society after serving their time. In addition to the state’s three Second Chance Centers, reentry employment services are also available post-release in the NATIVE HEALTH Central office, parole offices, reentry centers, and DES and ARIZONA@WORK offices throughout the state.
