Linkage-2-Care Re-Entry Program

Sunrise’s Linkage 2 Care Re-entry Program helps recently incarcerated people regain stability and integration back into the community. 

For up to a year post release, Sunrise’s Certified Peer Support Specialists connect Buncombe County residents who have been released from jail or prison in the last 90 days to vital resources such as individualized peer support, recovery programs, recovery housing, harm reduction services, food, work supplies and more. 

Our Peer Support Specialists have a unique bond with program participants and offer an authentic connection, build mutuality and trust, remove stigma, demonstrate the possibility of recovery and help individuals connect with their own strengths. 

These physical and emotional connections are vital in reintegrating formerly incarcerated individuals back into the community and provide stronger engagement and sustained connection when people are most vulnerable to recidivism. 


Sunrise can get you connected to resources such as.....

  • Treatment
  • Transportation
  • Food
  • Work related materials 
  • Transitional, sober living and halfway housing
  • Payment assistance
  • Help Obtaining an I.D. 
  • Harm Reduction Services
