A reference guide to Reentry Resources for people impacted by the criminal legal system.

Please note: we can’t begin to list all of Rochester and Monroe County’s vital local human service resources. 211 Lifeline is the community’s most comprehensive, up-to-date information and referral source for human resources. Their website can be searched by key word or topic AND you can dial “211” anytime (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) to speak with someone about your resource questions or needs.
