Since 2005, Focus Reentry has paired dedicated community mentors with men and women in the Boulder County Jail. Focus mentors are a presence, a partner who will always be there when it seems the rest of the world has turned its back.

For many people behind bars, the real punishment often begins on the day of release. Our clients have often lost their job, their home, and their support network. And they must try to start over under the hostile gaze of a society that judges them in an instant, ignoring their education, their talents and their basic humanity. At the same time, failing to find employment, safe housing, adequate medical care, and positive support can and does lead right back to jail. It happens all the time.

At Focus Reentry we believe things can be better. With just a little help along the way, we know that many people emerging from jail can clear those obstacles and rebuild a productive and satisfying life on the outside. Sometimes it takes surprisingly little.

We run a lean operation, with heavy reliance on our volunteers. But recruiting and training volunteers, assisting clients, overseeing the relationship, and continuing to improve our program does take money. And that’s where you come in!
