We try to keep our eyes out for more programs to add to the page. If your Oregon 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 Oregon reentry programs page, we will add it.

Also, please contact us if there are any issues with a Oregon reentry program that is listed here. We do try to keep this page as up to date as possible, but we’re not perfect.

  1. To whom it may concern,
    Are there people who speak to different organizations that can explain these programs, how they have assisted many to reclaim their lives and become able to help others also, as well as how those of us who are in the community can be of assistance in helping in many ways such as volunteering, networking, giving or just being there for these individuals who need a helping hand up.
    I know that these type of programs are very much needed and appreciated for those of who have know people who were in prison and committed all kinds of offenses, but I myself have worked with those who had criminal pasts, I have worshiped with some and been friends also.In fact in the military during the Vietnam conflict time, I fought and worked with many people who were convicted of crimes. I also took care of many in the medical field when I was an active RN.
    I think that I have had a heart for these individuals , even with those who have and are difficult people, but I have seen appreciation by many of these individuals. They are not monsters, but in many ways as in Scotland which one judge says that we need to change the designation of these individuals as having an infection that affects the community, family and friends, that as we help them to become free citizens with work, housing, skills and being able to have good relationships with the people they know and come in contact with, it results in a healthier community, raises the individuals up and they in turn find themselves helping others.
    So thank you for this work.
