They desire to be the standard of excellence in the field of corrections. Through innovation and collaboration, we want to embrace changes that better serve Missouri communities impacted by criminal behavior and achieve a safer State.
Mission: To support and encourage the reentry and restorative justice efforts of the Department of Corrections, reentry stakeholders, and the community.
Offenders can change and be productive citizens. MRP begins when an offender enters the Department of Corrections MRP is a shared responsibility of offenders, their families, community agencies and the state A seamless continuum of services should be in place for each offender leaving the institution to reduce future criminal behavior.
Offenders should receive training, education and treatment to better prepare them for reentry to the community. Offenders who are better prepared to fulfill their obligations to their children can reduce the intergenerational cycle of crime. Employment that provides adequate income is critical to the offender's financial stability in the community. Stable housing is one key component, which impacts the stability of the offender in the community.
Offenders should leave the institution as healthy as possible and have access to health care in the community. . Victims must be allowed to participate in the MRP and be supported by it.
