Kentucky Reentry is made up of councils throughout the state of Kentucky. They are made up of individuals and organizations networking together to share information and improve the reentry process. The members may be organizations and/or individuals that provide services and/or have interests in helping. Each group is focused toward ex-offenders coming back to their areas, the issues involved, and making their community safer.
The Kentucky Department of Corrections Reentry Branch has broken the State up into Regions to help facilitate the Reentry Councils and help Reentry within each Region. Below is the map with each region and each Reentry Program Administrative person. You can contact the person in your region/council by emailing the council here.
