The Texas 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 Texas 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 Texas reentry programs page, we will add it.
Also, please contact us if there are any issues with a Texas 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.

It is wonderful to see all the programs that help citizen that have committed crimes. As a mother of one of these people I am so happy to see that there are people who are willing to help people like my son. I just wonder if there are any programs that are closer to our home we live in Tyler,Tx. If anyone could help me are lead me in the way to go to help my son. I would greatly appreciate it God Bless you all for what you’ll do.
