Reentry Court

The Hope Commission is Delaware’s premier correctional reentry program. It provides comprehensive reentry support services that target crime-causing factors, shown to be predictors of recidivism, for formerly incarcerated high-risk men leaving prison and returning to Wilmington’s most distressed communities.

The Hope Commission provides rehabilitative treatment services and programs designed to promote successful reentry based on research-informed solutions. Risk and needs assessments, cognitive-behavioral therapies, vocational readiness training, educational peer support, behavioral health services, and family–reunification programs are utilized to reduce recidivism and improve safety in the State of Delaware.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

is an evidence-based practice using scientific techniques to reduce risk and recidivism.


Habilitation Empowerment Accountability Therapy (HEAT)

is a promising practice to develop a culturally proficient intervention in prison reentry.
