“Everybody has the right to a future that is not dictated by their past.”
– Iain De Jong, Professor
The De Muniz Resource Center is a key partner of the Marion County Reentry Initiative. This program is designed for Marion County residents seeking successful transition from incarceration back into the community. Programs rely on “evidence-based practices” to chart progress and eventual success of participants. The De Muniz Resource Center collaborates with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Parole & Probation and Bridgeway Recovery Services in providing programming for the Jail Reentry Program and the Women’s Alternative Sentencing Program.
The De Muniz Resource Center connects clients to community resources including: employment, education, housing, basic needs, financial literacy, support and advocacy, parenting and cognitive behavioral classes, legal clinic services, substance abuse and mental health treatment, transportation, and many other services. The De Muniz Resource Center serves both community clients as well as inmates in the Marion County Transition Center.
