Overview

LARRP is a network of public, community and faith-based agencies and advocates working together to ensure that our reentry system meets the needs of our agencies, communities, and the people we serve, both in terms of capacity and public policy.

The Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership (LARRP) is the only countywide network of reentry focused non-profit organizations, public agencies, and advocates that works to ensure that our reentry system meets the needs of our agencies, communities, and the people we serve, both in terms of capacity and public policy.

Since 2011, LARRP has been building a locally rooted reentry movement to advance positive change for millions of formerly incarcerated and convicted (FIC) Angelinos and build public will for greater equity in the criminal justice system. Since inception, LARRP has worked tirelessly to increase funding for housing, health, and social services for the FIC people and those who serve them.

LARRP is a project of Community Partners.

Mission

The mission of the Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership (LARRP) is to support the development and implementation of a comprehensive, culturally competent, and effective community reentry system, by providing a strong community voice in public policy and funding decisions; by serving as a convener of reentry service providers, advocates, and other stakeholders; and by building capacity across the county to meet the needs of the reentry community.
