Juvenile Reentry

On any given day, there are more than 43,500 juvenile offenders in residential placement across the country. Most of these youth will eventually return home and need assistance to do so successfully. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP’s) reentry programs help ensure that youth have the tools to become productive, law-abiding members of society upon their return.

Successful reentry reduces recidivism and increases public safety. The Second Chance Act authorizes federal grants for reentry services—such as employment and housing assistance, substance use treatment, family programming, and mentoring—that address common barriers to successful reentry.
