Reentry Programs

Benilde Hall has been honored as one of only 34 recipients nationwide of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Adult Reentry Program grant. This achievement underscores our unwavering dedication to assisting individuals in reclaiming their lives following incarceration.

 

The SAMHSA Adult Reentry Program grant was established to expand the scope of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment, recovery, and reentry services for adults navigating the criminal justice system. Specifically targeting individuals with SUDs and co-occurring substance use and mental disorders, this initiative supports their transition back into their families and communities after incarceration in state and local facilities.

 

SAMHSA's Offender Reentry Program (ORP) aims to facilitate the successful reintegration of individuals involved in the criminal justice system into society post-release. It offers a comprehensive array of services and support, including job training, substance use disorder treatment, mental health counseling, housing assistance, and connections to community resources. The overarching goal is to reduce recidivism rates and foster the effective reintegration of formerly incarcerated individuals into their communities.

 

The Community Mental Health Fund, formerly known as the Jackson County Mental Health Levy, is a voter-approved property tax levy dedicated to funding mental health services and programs within the county. This fund generates revenue specifically for mental health initiatives, including treatment, support, and resources for individuals facing mental health challenges. These funds are distributed among various organizations and agencies within the county, such as Benilde Hall, enhancing access to and support for those in need within the community.
