Active Re-Entry: Who We Are
Active Re-Entry became incorporated as a 501c3 in 1987. We serve the seven counties of Eastern Utah - from the Wyoming to the Arizona border - just over 27,000 square miles. The seven counties within the service district include - Dagget, Duchesne, Uintah, Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan. Active Re-Entry is a community based program which assists individuals with disabilities to achieve or maintain self-sufficient, productive lives and live independently within their own communities.

There are over 600 Centers throughout the nation, offering unique programs and services to meet their own community needs to the best of their ability as funding allows.
