CAL-PRI

I-10 Bridge over Calcasieu

Almost 50,000 people a year enter homeless shelters immediately after exiting incarceration. Returning from jail, prison or juvenile detention places an immediate barrier to stable housing and employment.

CAL-PRICAL-PRI is part of the Louisiana Prisoner Reentry Initiative, a statewide program providing tools, resources and services needed for returning citizens. The LA-PRI model develops individualized care plans for each offender during incarceration.

CAL-PRI’s goal is to address their transition, reintegration and aftercare plans. 

  • Facilitating dialogue, partnerships and events focused on re-entry
  • Coordinating efforts to address human services needs
  • Partnering with community organizations to address issues
  • Raising awareness and advocating for services for re-entry success
