Resource Guide for Formerly Incarcerated

A new resource guide – three years in the making – will help formerly incarcerated persons find the basic services they need to stabilize their lives. The guide, sponsored by the Private Industry Council, City of Oakland, Port of Oakland, Community Re-Entry Services Provider’s Network and Tri-Valley Regional Occupational Program, directs people to resources for housing, jobs, food, health care and more. Distribution is just beginning at the Santa Rita Jail. For information, contact Pooja Bhakta at (510) 768-4434 or pbhakta@oaklandpic
