Several people with the Pitt County Reentry Council gathered at the Pitt County Courthouse Monday to provide support to people involved in the criminal justice system.
This week is North Carolina Reentry Week.
People came seeking resources like employment, housing, healthcare, transportation and food.
“Our goal this week and the difference we are looking or seeking for is just to make the community aware of the resources that are available and to also encourage the community to become involved with reentry,” said Tiffany Vaughan, community development specialist with Division 1 Community Corrections.
Gov. Roy Cooper said the majority of more than 37,000 people currently serving sentences in the state’s prison and jails will transition into communities throughout the state.
