Returning Citizens

The Office of Returning Citizens (ORC) understands the importance of addressing barriers, advocacy, and fostering strong partnerships to create positive social impact and collaborative initiatives. We envision a Boston where returning citizens can return to their families, flourish in their communities, and regain their sense of dignity.

We help the more than 3,000 people that return home to Boston each year take healthy steps in their lives. Need help now? Call 617-635-5333 or complete our registration form:
