The Cameron ReCess, Re-Entry Group
We bridge the gap between parolees and the community by utilizing resources currently in place and by creating new resources based on identified needs. We do not intend to "reinvent the wheel". We hope to partner with organizations, faith-based communities, and any other entities available to assist ex-offenders in becoming successful members of our communities.
What is ReCess?
