Community Re-Entry Network Program (CRNP)

To work in partnership with the community to assess, plan and implement effective strategies to reduce recidivism, increase public safety and successfully assist and support ex-offenders in their transition into productive, contributing members of the Houston community.

Annually, 13,000 – 15,000 ex-offenders are released into Harris County from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

The City of Houston Health Department has developed the Community Re-Entry Network Program. It is an innovative program and support system for those previously incarcerated. The core program components are behavioral health, case management, workforce development and support and life skills classes to aid in stabilizing the participant's ability to be independent and self-sufficient. The Community Re-Entry Network Program (CRNP) works closely with community agencies to assist participants in getting their needs met.

If you have previously been incarcerated and you need additional support with becoming a more productive citizen and aspire to give back to your community, feel free to contact us.
