Capital Area Reentry
Family Resource Center South Atlantic, as the Intermediary Agency, will coordinate with and assist the Capital Area Reentry Council (CARC) to implement a network of reentry services to returning adult citizens (ages 18 and up) and justice involved individuals to support their successful transition from secure confinement back to their families and communities in Wake County. We will identify and secure supportive services such as housing assistance, transportation assistance, employment assistance, job readiness, child care assistance and basic needs, make referrals to behavioral health services and other related community or county administered programs as needed.
