This website is a dynamic website and is continually being updated. Please check back often for updates. Also be watching for the new Tarrant County Reentry Coalition Newsletter, where we will publish information about the Reentry Resources Directory and this website as they evolve.
Tarrant County is the Fort Worth area of Texas. It is made up of 46 municipalities and is one of the biggest "reentry" counties in the U.S. with over 5,200 offenders returning home each year from the state prison system and many thousands more cycling through the jail and federal prison systems.

The Tarrant County Reentry Resource Directory was developed and is maintained through a grant from Tarrant County Government.
The project was started in March 2012 and the website was launched in August 2012.
The project was a collaborative effort between various stakeholders in the community who had the common goal of creating a useful resource for returning citizens, coming back to Tarrant County from jail or prision.
An updated resource list, shared across the entire community, is one of the most strategic things we can do to break the devastating cycle of recidivism and provide real help to those trying to start their lives over "the right way."
Through strong leadership and keen insight, the Tarrant County Commissioner's Court had a vision of improving the success of reentry for men and women returning from incarceration. They have worked to unite reentry organizations, nonprofit charities, and concerned citizens to create an all-inclusive, comprehensive website to accomplish this goal.
