The Los Angeles Regional Reentry Partnership
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. LARRP is the successor organization to several other reentry groups including the LASD Reentry Advisory Board and the 21st Century Reentry Project.
The work of LARRP is accomplished through a Steering Committee and three standing committees: Housing, Employment, and Behavioral Health.
LARRP is a project of Community Partners.
