Maine Coastal Regional Reentry Center
The Maine Coastal Regional Reentry Center (MCRRC) in Belfast, Maine is a residential reentry center designed to give incarcerated men the skills and experience they need to successfully live as positive citizen and employees after they transition into their home communities. Each week, the men are provided with over 40 hours of treatment, and educational and vocational opportunities focused upon reducing recidivism. All programs are gender responsive, evidence based and provide men with opportunities to practice newly acquired living skills.
Program partners include the Maine Department of Corrections, Maine Board of Corrections, Waldo County Sheriff's Office, and Restorative Justice Project.

The interior of the reentry center is designed to provide security while also offering an enviroment to facilitate the transitional process necessary for long-term success once men have left the program.
Your future success is our mission -- these are the first words seen as the men enter the program. Success is a partnership between the staff and residents with the clear goal of addressing issues that have impacted success in the past.
