DOC Transition Services Home page

Through the Going Home Initiative, the state of North Carolina will create a systemic pre-release, community transition and reentry infrastructure.  Many services necessary to successful transition and reentry are available, however they are not systemically coordinated as a seamless system among state and local government agencies, community-based organizations including faith-based initiatives, community-based treatment providers, the offender, the offender’s family, victim advocates, or the community at large.  Successful transition and reentry into any community by offenders, especially serious and violent offenders requires a commitment by all stakeholders to a common set of goals and objectives.

Creating the seamless system is a theme of the Going Home Initiative.  Another is that building and strengthening the capacity of local partners committed to successful transition and reentry in each community is necessary to ensure long-term success and sustainability for offenders.  The network must include community-based organizations, faith-based initiatives, and the many grassroots outreach workers, mentors, and sponsors who need training, resources, and support to continue working with ex-offenders in the community.  The focus of North Carolina’s Going Home Initiative project will be to develop a sustainable infrastructure of shared decision-making, responsibility, and accountability for offering offenders an opportunity to become law-abiding citizens, productive members of their communities, and responsible members of their families.
