About the San Bernardino County Reentry Collaborative

In response to the concerns posed at the State level, by other Counties, and the community at large, the Department of Public Health (DPH) formed a San Bernardino County Reentry Task Force. The purpose of the Reentry Task Force was to draft policy recommendations that would be presented to the Board of Supervisors (Board) to address the issue of parolee re-entry, and the corresponding complex health and community issues as a result. The San Bernardino County Reentry Collaborative (SBCRC) encompasses a comprehensive approach with community organizations and local government building upon past efforts and forging new partnerships to develop a comprehensive plan for the successful reintegration of ex-offenders returning to the community.

Our Mission

The SBCRC is a partnership of agencies, organization and individuals committed to making our communities safer through the successful reentry and long-term success of the formerly incarcerated. The SBCRC connects individuals seeking change, before and after release, to services needed to ensure a balanced and successful reentry thereby interrupting the cycle of offending and reoffending.

Our Vision

The SBCRC offers a responsive resource network that provides seamless services to formerly incarcerated individuals and their families to ensure the safety and health of former incarcerated individuals and our communities.
