The “One-Stop Shop” is an efficient and convenient way to cover a wide range of needs of those who are formerly incarcerated. The events include food, music and access to services offered by many agencies and organizations such as the Department of Social Services, OAR, Region Ten, Goodwill Industries, New Beginnings, and the Fountain Fund. By combining this variety of organizations and services, we help ensure that when these individuals are released from prison, they will not return. 

This free event is open to all members of the community (regardless of incarceration status) who are in need of the following services:
  • Medical & Mental Healthcare
  • Substance Abuse Counseling
  • Access to legal support
  • Reinstatement of licenses and health getting birth certificates
  • Financial literacy and support 
  • Career counseling
  • Access to housing
  • Education and apprentices opportunities

Program History
The OSS started last summer when the state of Virginia’s Earned Sentence Credit law became effective on July 1, 2022. This law provided an opportunity to incarcerated individuals to reduce their sentences by participating in prison programs and demonstrating good behavior. Most of the individuals who qualified for this early release program were those who had been in prison the longest. The Charlottesville Albemarle Reentry Council (CARC) recognized that these individuals would require a wide range of needs and services upon reentering their Virginia communities. In response to this need, a committee of the CARC planned and implemented the One Stop Shop (OSS).
