The goal of the programs department at the Hampton Roads Regional Jail is to address the needs of inmates returning to the community using a holistic approach. The Reentry program will address the inmates’ physical, mental, and spiritual needs through various groups and activities.
The Reentry program will provide locality based services to offenders residing in the Hampton Roads Regional Jail from Hampton, Newport News, Portsmouth and Norfolk. Hampton Roads Regional Jail is in collaboration with agencies to provide necessary services to assist offenders in being successful and eliminate the potential for recidivism.
