The Yavapai Reentry Project was established in 2011 to focus on a key population in the community whose needs were not being fulfilled— those exiting the department of corrections.  In an effort to reduce recidivism, improve individual lives, and promote a safer community for all members of Yavapai County, a group of non-profit organizations, government offices, and motivated community members came together to form the Yavapai Reentry Project.

Why does the Yavapai Reentry Project exist?
