Re-entry Issues and Links


Each year more than 600,000 people are released from prison. The obstacles to successful reentry are daunting and a large proportion of inmates end up returning to prison although they were adamant that they would not be the ones to return. In recognition of the human and financial toll of recidivism, there is an interest among both community advocates and public officials in prisoner reentry initiatives. We will continue to update this page as we get more information.
