Virginia CARES

Are you an ex-offender? Do you know someone who is?

Our Virginia CARES (Community Action Re-entry System) program can help your transition back to the community. We assist with job training, job searches, interview preparation, and transportation, as well as applications for rights restoration.

To be eligible for CARES services, you must be within 1 year of release.

Services are available to residents of the following areas:

  • Alleghany County
  • Botetourt County
  • Covington
  • Craig County
  • Roanoke City
  • Roanoke County
  • Salem

You may receive services if you live outside of one of these areas provided that you have transportation to one of TAP’s offices.

Pre-release services are available at the Roanoke City Jail and the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
