Lycoming County Reentry Coalition


The Lycoming County Reentry Coalition was originally established in 2015 after receiving a grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. Following a hiatus, due to staffing and organizational changes, the Lycoming County Reentry Coalition was reestablished in 2021. Lycoming County partnered with the GEO Reentry Services to reestablish the coalition in coordination with the County’s In-Prison Reentry Program. All community members are welcome to be a member of the Lycoming County Reentry Coalition. Current members include individuals in Lycoming County government, law enforcement, substance abuse and mental health treatment, the judiciary, public defenders, non-profit organizations, and community businesses.


The vision of the Lycoming County Reentry Coalition is to provide every reentrant with the support, knowledge, and tools necessary to successfully and safely reintegrate into the community; and through their own initiative, remain offense-free.


The mission of the Lycoming County Reentry Coalition is to facilitate the successful reintegration of reentrants into the community. This will be achieved by educating the public about reentry and by forming collaborative partnerships with government entities, faith- and community-based organizations, and other community stakeholders to provide support, knowledge, and tools. The reentry process begins when the offender enters the criminal justice system; and through the utilization of a holistic approach with an emphasis on education, family, health services, substance abuse treatment, employment, mentorship, and housing, we shall prominently improve reintegration, reduce recidivism, and enhance public safety.
