Organizer

UNLOCKING DOORS®

Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Unlocking DOORS® is a comprehensive statewide “Community Reentry Network” that is committed to reducing crime and the ever-escalating fiscal impact to the State of Texas and its communities through coordinated collaboration, partnership, public awareness, reporting of evidence-based analytics and predictive trends, education and training.

Unlocking DOORS®, through its unique and unduplicated “Reentry Brokerage®/Data and Predictive Trends” Model, reduces crime by guiding those with criminal backgrounds to a future of self-sufficiency that is crime-free. By collaborating and coordinating with numerous “brokered” partners and providers statewide (235 and counting), Unlocking DOORS® pulls together all resources, organizations, and programs into one coordinated effort, allowing for cross-networking, collaboration, cohesion and a stronger service model for those with criminal backgrounds.
