The California reentry program and assistance page is a big work in progress. We try to keep our eyes out for more programs to add to the page. If your California reentry program is not listed here, please contact us if you would like it to be. Your program will be reviewed as soon as possible once we receive it. If we feel that it is a good addition to our California reentry programs page, we will add it.
Also, please contact us if there are any issues with a California reentry program that is listed here. We do try to keep this page as up to date as possible, but we’re not perfect. Sometimes we do miss things, and appreciate them being pointed out to us. We will fix issues as soon as we find them or they are brought to our attention.
