Reentry Success DC started in 2018 as a collaboration between the GEO Group and the National Federation of Federal Employees (an affiliate of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers). The program enhances the GEO Group’s pre- and post-release services by connecting returning citizens to gainful employment. Reentry Success DC is available to every Continuum of Care participant that completed a sentence at the Rivers Correctional Facility in North Carolina and is returning to Washington DC.
“As far as I know, this is the only one in the world, in the private sector that I know of where all the parties, third parties, government, union, the facilities, the company, are all working together to make this happen. Everybody’s in it a hundred percent. And the commodity is to get great jobs for good people in second chances.”Roosevelt Littlejohn, National Business Representative of the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE)
“The Re-entry Success DC program is a very valuable contribution to reintegration of men and women coming home from prison in the District of Columbia. The investment that the Rivers Correctional Institution is making post release is a phenomenal benefit, because first it isn’t something that they’re obligated to do, but yet it’s something that can ensure people have at least an opportunity to get started in a stable way, and ultimately I think be more successful in re-integration.”Cedric Hendricks, Acting Deputy Director of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA)
