The Shelby County Office of Reentry is a community response to the needs of returning citizens with the support of the State of Tennessee (TDOC Commissioner), and Shelby County Government (Mayor's Administration). The Office of Reentry provides essential reentry resources in one place.

 

The ultimate goals of the Office of Reentry are:

 

To create connections between Shelby County reentry resources and specific employers ready to hire people with a criminal history.

 

Realign our focus from a traditional soft skills training, to hands-on technical and vocational programs in an effort to assist our clients in gaining self-sufficient employment, and/or entrepreneurship.

 
 

Get FOCUSED

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

FOCUSED is an 11-week training program that combines job readiness with the opportunity for selection into one of our vocational training programs.
 

Upon completion, clients are prepared to earn livable wages utilizing the hard skills obtained, through employment or entrepreneurship.
 

In addition to job readiness, clients will receive vital information related to:

  • Family Reconnection

  • Financial Literacy

  • Healthy Living

  • Expungement

  • Voting Rights Restoration

 

Our clients will participate in a holistic network of community services designed to restore dignity and confidence while
providing opportunities for individual and family success. Clients that complete (minimum 80% attendance) FOCUSED will
have opportunities to gain self-sufficiency through employment or become entrepreneurs.
