The "Roadmap to Reentry" Guide

The “Roadmap to Reentry: A California Legal Guide" is designed to be a resource of legal information that people can turn to about issues along the path of reentry. It is comprehensive in scope, covering nine areas of law and civic life: Housing, Employment, Parole & Probation, Education, Cleaning Up Your Criminal Record, ID & Voting, Family & Children, Public Benefits, and Court-ordered Debt.


“I want to say Thank You for the Roadmap to Reentry Legal Guide. It has been very, very helpful to me. Now I am able to say I feel good about getting out of Prison and know that I’ll be able to get my life back.”

Root & Rebound also creates additional toolkits and resources to support people in reentry and preparing for release, along with their loved ones, advocates, and other critical stakeholders (employers, landlords, etc.) who are important allies in the movement for criminal justice reform. We will add future toolkits here, so look out for new resources!
