Previously incarcerated youth reintegrating into their communities face many challenges. This study provided visual entry into the lives of three youth through the use of Photovoice methodology. Participants included three males, two Latinos and one White non-Latino, who had successfully been reentered into their communities for at least four months. During the eight-week program, participants photographed images of importance to them in their homes and communities. These were discussed and ultimately shared through a community photo exhibit. The resulting themes, related to their perceived supports and challenges to successful reentry, are presented with implications for supporting youth in their community reintegration.
