Map of Reentry Centers


The Massachusetts Parole Board operates regional reentry centers across the state. These centers help inmates make the transition from prison to the community. Staff help released inmates to get food assistance, obtain a state I.D. card, renew a driver's license, open a bank account, find work, and find counseling. These centers are open to released inmates with no post-release supervision. If you are a released inmate, members of our department may be able bring you to the reentry center closest to your release address. This program is also available to former inmates at any time after they are released.
