The facts

68% of all released prisoners will re-offend and return to incarceration within 3 years of their release from incarceration.

Released offenders are at their greatest risk of relapse re-offense and re-incarceration in their first 30-90 days after their release from incarceration.

This 30-90 day period also presents a unique opportunity for the community to provide the needs to these released prisoners, and thereby offer them the chance to successfully transition back into society as a law-abiding, productive citizen.

Children of incarcerated parents face an increased risk of themselves becoming incarcerated.

Reasons Prisoners Getting Rearrested Within 3 Years

- click to enlarge graph -

Prisoners who return to communities deprived of resources and ill-equipped to meet the challenges of this population may have higher rates of recidivism.

About one in 10 persons entering prison has been recently homeless and about the same number of individuals who leave prison end up homeless at some point.

Former prisoners face serious obstacles in employment when they return to their communities. 

Released prisoners who do not have stable housing arrangements are significantly more likely to end up back in prison.

Participants [community residents] in several focus groups remarked that information about available programs is not centralized or easily available to former prisoners and their relatives.

  3. BulletThe client’s health needs and the availability of insurance and/or other community resources.

  4. BulletClothing needs (personal and job), of clients.

  5. BulletTransportation availability (for job search, counseling, etc.).

  6. BulletClients’ willingness to follow a case plan, including employment, mentorship, counseling, and programming (whether faith-based or secular).
