SAN BERNARDINO RE-ENTRY COLLABORATIVE Mission The SBCRC is a partnership of agencies, organizations and individuals committed to making our communities safer through the successful reentry and long-term success of the formerly incarcerated. The SBCRC connects individuals seeking change, before and after release, to services needed to ensure a balanced and successful reentry thereby interrupting the cycle of offending and reoffending. Vision The SBCRC offers a responsive resource network that provides seamless services to formerly incarcerated individuals and their families to ensure the safety and health of former incarcerated individuals and our communities. Values 1.Respect 2.Dignity 3. Long-term sustainable change 4. Safety for people and communities.
HOW CAN WE HELP? Aztecs Rising can help reduce recidivism by offering the two-fold approach of Community Gang Intervention/Outreach as well as Family Case Management Wrap around services. *Recruitment of community members that can qualify for the role of outreach. *Brush Clearance/ Weed abatement contracts with local, private, or government agencies. *Tattoo Removal Program *Fire Training and placement for emergency on-call fire fighters. Case manager develops relationships with re-entry individuals by assessing for services 3 months prior to release. Aztecs Rising professionals can help address the public health, public safety, and social concerns associated with the re-entry population. Our Mission, Vision, Values, and Goals point in the same direction: The idea is to reduce recidivism and address systematic challenges that will lead to safer communities. Providing wrap around services and developing community relationships to those individuals being released will help provide much needed “immediate” services and potentially reduce recidivism rates by offering them different opportunities for success. This in turn will increase the publics safety.
