Resources For Ex-Offenders
The Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition (CCJRC) is a non-profit organization that was formed to halt the exponential growth in the state prison population and to advocate for reintegration and alternatives to prison. Their 200-page book Go: Getting on After Getting Out provides extensive information to help people prepare for release and successfully reintegrate back into their families and communities. It's also helpful for family members, community service providers and criminal justice professionals. Their online list of resources is a one-stop source for those affected.
