    The mission of the prisoner reentry program is to provide various support mechanisms and educational tools to allow for a successful return into the community.

  • History:
  • The original resettlement program was designed to assist offenders in preparing for and accomplishing a successful return to the community by being responsive to their needs including food, shelter, clothing, education, medical, emotional support and encouragement. This grant application seeks financial resources to better address the recidivism rates of former inmates and stop the likelihood of their children entering into the penal system by establishing enhanced reading & educational programs.

    The current program is designed to assist offenders in preparing for and accomplishing a successful return to the community. This program provides on-going assistance in locating and accessing resources responsive to the needs, including food, shelter, clothing, education, medical services, as well as emotional support and encouragement. Staff begin working with clients while they are incarcerated so that support systems are in place upon release. Clients request admission to the program through their institutional counselor.

    However, the recidivism rates of former incarcerated males have not been positively impacted and the likelihood of their children entering in the penal system increases six-fold.

    This program seeks additional funding to enhance the educational requirements of both clients and their children by establishing reading programs that will allow a better chance of keeping the family intact and build better bonding techniques. When parents read to their children, a better chance for lower recidivism rates will occur as the family renews bonding and integration centered on education.

    Other enhancements such as providing GED / High School Diploma assistance will also be provided.
