/// Re-entry Resources

The guide has been compiled with the intention of increasing public access to services that are free or low-cost in the New Orleans area. Most listings are for services located in Orleans & Jefferson parishes, although select state and nationwide services have also been included. It has been produced as a public service by volunteer community members. Resources and eligibility may have changed since the time this guide was written, so we recommend connecting to service providers directly to obtain accurate and up to date information.
