Breaking the Cycle: The County of Santa Clara Provides Services to Formerly Incarcerated Individuals

People reentering a life after incarceration often struggle with unemployment, homelessness, food insecurity, and, in some cases, support for sober living. To address these challenges and to break the cycle of incarceration, the Office of Diversion and Reentry Services (ODRS) offers essential services to help people successfully transition back into the community after being released from jail or prison.
