Benefit from our experience
We operate many non-residential reentry programs for federal, state, and local corrections agencies—organizations like yours that are also committed to enhancing community safety and breaking the chronic cycle of recidivism.
Achieve community goals
Evidence-based treatment and training get the positive results your community wants and deserves—reduced recidivism that lowers pressure on jails and prisons, money saved, and successful community reintegration for individuals with complex criminal histories.
We maintain fidelity, while offering flexible solutions
Because each agency’s needs, participant population and budget varies, we build programs that meet any agency’s needs while maintaining program fidelity. These non-residential reentry programs provide caring and compassionate treatment to address the needs of community-based offenders who are more likely to recidivate based on criminal history and risk factors. We can manage participants for short or long durations, supplemented by community connections and resources that help stabilize them.
“These programs play an integral part in our criminal justice reform efforts,” said Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections Secretary James M. Le Blanc.
Cost-efficient alternatives to incarceration
Changing criminal thinking
Each participant referred to one of our non-residential reentry programs is assessed for criminogenic risk and needs factors. Participants attend peer group therapy and receive individual case management and counseling. Group sessions include cognitive behavioral therapy; anger management; substance abuse; conflict resolution skills; and employment and educational services. At each phase, risk levels for recidivating drop.
Our programs are rooted in evidence-based practice, which recommends positive reinforcement coupled with consistent, timely, and appropriate use of sanctions for non-compliance. Staff are trained and certified in Motivational Interviewing techniques. Participants are held accountable with daily check-ins, ongoing drug and alcohol testing, and intensive case management.

GEO Reentry's flexible innovation in the field
Supporting PA parolees
The Pennsylvania DOC selected GEO Reentry to open non-residential reentry programs for parolees throughout the Commonwealth as part of its initiative to reduce recidivism and lower incarceration costs. GEO Reentry tailored the services to the needs of the parolee population, offering ongoing reporting, cognitive behavioral treatment, and employment-readiness training for up to six months.
Napa’s Spanish-speaking track
With a sizable local Hispanic population, the Napa County Probation Department sought a Spanish-speaking track within its Community Corrections Service Center. GEO Reentry opened this track in 2016, and it has grown to better serve the reentry needs of the local community.
