About the Reentry Solutions Group Project

The mission of Reentry Solutions Group (RSG) is to help create a peaceful, safe, and supportive West Contra Costa County by organizing, educating, and mobilizing our community to prevent and heal the harms related to crime and incarceration. In doing this work, we recognize and value all members of our community, including those who are involved in the criminal justice system, victims, and families.

Formed in July 2011 in response to the community’s desire for a “common table” offering consistent opportunities for ongoing learning and coordination related to reentry, the Reentry Solutions Group has come to serve as a backbone organization fostering collective impact to reduce incarceration and recidivism across Contra Costa County.

We provide five backbone functions:


Our public meetings are held from 12 Noon to 2 PM on the last Tuesday of every month; these meetings are free and open to all who are interested in improving our community by fostering successful reentry.

Originally a project of Bay Area Legal Aid, today the Reentry Solutions Group is managed by Further The Work. Our fiscal sponsor is Peace Development Fund.

You can join the mailing list by texting the word "reentry" to 22828, or by signing up here.
