The Department of Human and Community Renewal (DHCR) was established in 1989 to serve the disadvantaged adult populations of Metropolitan Chicago, primarily ex-offenders returning to the Cook County area. Our primary focus is to reduce the prison population while decreasing crime in our community. We work to interrupt the cycle of crime by improving the quality of life of former offenders through program activities designed to provide support and individualized attention during the critical reentry process.
