The mission of Focus Reentry is to reduce recidivism and enhance community safety. As the only formal program available to incarcerated individuals who are newly released from the Boulder County Jail, Focus Reentry assigns Mentors to serve as a bridge in the transition back into society, helping individuals to stabilize, rebuild their lives and achieve self-sufficiency.

FOCUS Reentry recently celebrated its Ten Year Anniversary. Over the years, our dedicated mentors have helped incarcerated and formerly incarcerated citizens successfully reintegrate into our community. Our success over the past ten years continues today. Our Program Manager Amanda De Herrera analyzed recent data, concluding that our clients have a one-year recidivism rate of less than 15%. We attribute this success to our mutual efforts with many community partners. We would like to express our gratitude to the Boulder County Jail and Jail Based Behavioral Services for their support of our program.
Focus Reentry looks forward to the next ten years, as we strive to expand our unique mentoring program and we hope to continue to expand our partnerships with community volunteers and organizations who share our mission of improving lives, reducing recidivism and enhancing community safety. Working together as a community, we can prevent crime and change lives.
