The San Bernardino County Reentry Collaborative (SBCRC) is a partnership of agencies, organizations, and individuals committed to making our communities safer through the successful reentry and long-term success of the formerly incarcerated.
San Bernardino County is the largest county in the state of California and the United States. The diverse and extensive geography presented unique challenges for the reentry population and service providers. The distinct and expansive needs of the community played a critical role in the development of strategies related to public safety, housing, employment, education, health and human services, and supporting the role of faith-based and community organizations.
The SBCRC has an ongoing commitment to build and provide collaborative, evidence-based problem-solving strategies that address systemic changes leading to safer communities in San Bernardino County. The SBCRC is proud of its role as a stakeholder in developing strategies for the reintegration of the recently incarcerated into our communities and ultimately reduce recidivism rates while ensuring the health and safety of our communities.
Below are some general descriptives showcasing 211 Reentry call data and in-person outreach data. The purpose behind this is to give you an idea of how many calls are associated with Reentry per month and what type of needs are being asked for. There is also a map dedicated to all the resources we have in San Bernardino County for our Reentry population at the bottom of the page.
The chart directly below represents the number of calls 211 gets related to Reentry per month. These numbers consist of calls that may have been messages left for a 211 Reentry specialist, repeated calls from the same client or any third-party calls. Clients usually call seeking various resources. The chart labeled "211 Reentry Needs" displays the types of resources clients seek. There is an option to filter this information to get a deeper understanding. Clicking on the "View Source Data" at the bottom left-hand corner of any of the charts will allow you to look at the dataset and all the variables associated with that dataset that may not be displayed in the chart.
This outreach was conducted in person by a 211 Reentry specialist. Planned outreach events allow the 211 Reentry specialist to introduce herself and the program to clients with a more personal touch. Some individuals may not feel as comfortable discussing their situation over the phone, so an in-person outreach allows individuals to receive guidance more comfortably. The 211 Reentry specialist also reaches out to those individuals that are still in custody to help them execute their goals once released.
This table below displays the in-person outreach conducted. Data for January was not collected.
