OAR helps formerly incarcerated individuals find success in the community.


Since 1971, OAR has been the leading Reentry Service provider in the Richmond area.  Each year we serve approximately 4,000 individuals: those that are currently incarcerated and near release and those that have recently been released from incarceration and are living in the community.

We invite you to join us on this journey of helping folks to find their way and achieve success.
