Planning a Reentry Program: A Toolkit for Tribal Communities


Reentry Toolkit for Tribal Communities cover imageDeveloped by the American Probation and Parole Association, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, this toolkit is designed to help tribal justice system practitioners create or enhance reentry programs for American Indians and Alaska Natives returning from jail or prison. It also offers guidance for practitioners who are currently working in a reentry program.

The toolkit begins with the formation of a planning team and proceeds through all the key steps of developing a reentry program, including developing partnerships, refning your reentry program, measuring program impact, and planning for sustainability.

The information provided in this toolkit is informed by the work of reentry programs in Indian Country; the expertise of the Center for Court Innovation, which established and operates one of the nation’s frst reentry courts; the Harlem Parole Reentry Court; and the work done by the American Probation and Parole Association, an association composed of members involved with pretrial, probation, parole, and community-based corrections.
