Reentry Award

The PbS Reentry Award was created in 2016 to provide the little things that we all need but youths leaving juvenile justice rarely have access to. It is designed to make the transition to independent living as smooth as possible. Knowing that so many bumps and barriers already exist, something as simple as sheets and blankets or clothes for an interview or work can make all the difference.
