Mecklenburg Re-Entry Services

About Us: Mecklenburg County Re-Entry Services (RES) provides high-risk/high-needs clients with evidence-based services and supports to assist in the successful transition from incarceration to the community.  RES begins working with the client while incarcerated through on-site case management assisting with home planning, application for benefits, referral and coordination of medical and behavioral health services, and development of employment plans.  Services available after release include case management, educational assistance, vocational programs, substance abuse, and mental health treatment referrals, basic needs, transportation, employment and housing.  RES does serve people on the registry.

To be eligible for RES services the client must:

      1. Be sixteen (16) years of age or older; eighteen (18) and older for housing.
      2. Have a verifiable residence in Mecklenburg County (the community shelters do qualify, county of conviction or residence is Mecklenburg).
      3. Have been incarcerated by the NC Department of Public Safety or another state/federal correctional system, or served a sentence in the Mecklenburg County Jail.
      4. Be compliant with treatment recommendations if under the care of a physician or counselor for mental health and/or substance use disorders.
      5. Be in need of educational, vocational, or employment supports as the primary focus of service.
      6. Agrees to participate in the program as outlined by RES

Our Goal: To provide comprehensive case management supporting each client’s transition. To reduce recidivism and criminal thinking patterns among those in transition. To reduce county costs for those released on post‐release supervision following incarceration.
