In order to truly unlock the keys to prison, it takes the support of the community to help ex-offenders’ transition back home successfully. CCRC, and its community stake holders are committed to assisting ex-offenders returning to the community by connecting them to local resources; reduce crime which results in the increase of safety in the community, lessen taxpayer burden & reduced recidivism.
CCRC aims to bring together a broad coalition of stakeholders within and around the surrounding community in order to promote the successful reintegration of Cochise County ex-offenders returning to the community; reduce crime, increase the safety of the community, and reduce recidivism. We provide a network of resources to help individuals and their families reconnect and establish healthy, positive relationships and social ties through community resource connections.
The specific purpose of this corporation is to work with individuals who require assistance integrating back into society – Youth and Adult re-entry services, housing, education, mentoring, tutoring and job training, while coaching and motivating them to enhance their ability to be successful in reaching their highest potential within society.”
