Recruiting Organization: Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office
What is Re Entry Support Services (RESS)?
Established in 2021, Re-Entry Support Services (RESS) has been a vital resource for our incarcerated residents returning into the community. For those who are not familiar with the re-entry process, there are challenges that the incarcerated will encounter. Most often these are housing and employment.
The purpose of RESS is to support their initial efforts. It intercepts the residents who are being released from the detention center and into the community. By providing a backpack of basic toiletries, it is the first step to regaining their dignity.
Job responsibilities include greeting residents and visitors. This also includes offering RESS backpacks to leaving residents. At the RESS desk, we also provide sources of information that include employment, housing, transportation, mental health treatment, addiction, and recovery services.
Qualifications for Position
· Be at least eighteen years of age
· Excellent communications skills
· Outgoing, friendly and helpful manner

· Prior offender/residents may be accepted as volunteers
Our orientation sessions last approximately 2 hours. During orientation, we will discuss the purpose of RESS, policy and procedures. Orientations are held every other Wednesday.
