In 2008, California State University, Chico students and community leaders recognized and appreciated that by working together, we could improve community support and encourage people reentering communities from jails and prison. This effort led to the creation of Partners for Formerly Incarcerated People, a group of people with the goal of helping people transition back from the criminal justice system to the community.

We wanted to provide people with guidance on how to access and receive the services they needed. We decided the best way to do this was to create a guide that included comprehensive and accurate information for the reentry community within the Butte and Glenn Counties. This directory was created for people who wish to reenter society and become productive members of that society.

Below, we have broken the directory into corresponding sections.
