Connecting Maine’s
Re-Entry Community

 

Maine Prisoner Re-Entry Network (MPRN), exists to measurably reduce Maine’s recidivism rate. MPRN employs a local community approach to the issues facing the formerly incarcerated and our community at large.

The Network

MPRN employs a community by community approach drawing organizations together around the mission of supporting citizens returning from prison & jail. MPRN travels the state, convening monthly community meetings, developing relationships between non-profits, community leaders, faith-based organizations, Department of Corrections, mental health & substance use professionals, County jails, recovery advocates, formerly incarcerated, family, and all interested in assisting returning citizens. Currently MPRN has held dozens of monthly meetings in Lewiston-Auburn, Augusta, Bangor, Rockland, Maine State Prison, So. Portland, Westbrook, Somerset County Jail with plans for Kennebec Sheriff’s Office, York County, Belfast, Aroostook County, and Downeast. MPRN is proud of the 100’s of Network members, working together to address re-entry challenges, with participation from MDOC and Sheriff’s Departments from the start.

Re-Entry Housing Initiative

One of the most difficult parts of establishing an early pattern of success for people reintegrating into society is making sure that they have enough stability to succeed. More than anything, that means making sure they have stable housing on those first nights of freedom to give them time to become self-sufficient.

With the help of charitable donations, MPRN attempts to identify people with the greatest need that have little to no external familial support and place them in a suitable, beneficial housing situation. Please consider clicking the button on the left and donating to help us in this endeavor.

Comprehensive Re-Entry
Means Making Connections

Above all, MPRN creates and facilitates connections: connecting community organizations, connecting clients to services and supports, connecting the DOC with community orgs, connecting communities with other communities, connecting returning citizens with each other, connecting volunteers with opportunities, connecting family members of those who are incarcerated, connecting the community outside with the community inside of our prisons and jails. Blurring the lines between “inside” and “outside”, resulting in one collaborative community.
