Reentry

The Reentry Program is funded by a federal grant and administered by Tidewater Youth Services Commission, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice.  The reentry process prepares youth for a successful return to the community from a juvenile correctional center and helps ensure that he/she avoids further court action or involvement.joe-lloyd2-150x150
