Our Bayou Region Reentry Coalition meeting is where we will gather to reinforce our shared purpose, discuss the vital role of our coalition, and explore how we can continue to overcome barriers and strengthen our community.

Our Purpose:

The primary objective of this meeting is to reaffirm our commitment to facilitating successful reentry for individuals returning to our community after incarceration. We aim to create a supportive network that promotes reintegration, reduces recidivism, and fosters a safer, more inclusive Bayou Region.

Importance of the Coalition:

Our coalition plays a pivotal role in our community’s well-being. By bringing together various stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, law enforcement, and community leaders, we address the complex challenges faced by individuals reentering society. Together, we can provide resources, support, and guidance to help them rebuild their lives and build safer communities.

Co-Chair Leads:

Our Co-Chair leads include Community Co-Chair Judge Juan Pickett, Prison Co-Chair Major Cortrell Davis, and Prison Co-Chair Agent Hester Serrano.

The Public is Welcome:
