"Roadmap to Reentry" Guide

The “Roadmap to Reentry” 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.”

If you can, please consider donating to Root & Rebound, to ensure that we can continue to grow our programs and expand our free-flow of information of reentry information to the hundreds of thousands of Californians most impacted by the criminal justice system and mass incarceration. Any amount is meaningful. Donate here today.
