Who We Are
The Metro Atlanta Reentry Coalition (MARC) is comprised of a multi-jurisdictional body of members who contribute to reentry efforts in the metro Atlanta area. MARC hopes to increase inter-agency cooperation and effectiveness of reentry systems throughout the metro area, and eventually, the entire state of Georgia.
The Metro Atlanta Reentry Coalition (MARC) envisions a metropolitan area working collectively to reduce recidivism by increasing opportunities for successful reentry.
With over 100 participating organizations, MARC aims to provide the guidance and support required for individuals reentering their communities so they can become positive members of society and avoid recidivism.
By becoming a member of MARC, Reentrants will receive free access to education, employment, housing, and health resources in their community. Additionally, MARC will share information on research, funding, policy, and public safety measures that can help individuals in their reentry journey.
The Metro Atlanta Reentry Coalition (MARC) provides organizational members with opportunities to network and collaborate with reentry stakeholders on resource information and availability, local event announcements, and volunteer opportunities.
