Reform and Re-Entry

PrintPrintE-MailE-Mail ""Share

People who entered adult prisons as juveniles and have been incarcerated for years face unique challenges upon release. Their experience with the outside world is limited to that of a teenager -- some never learned to drive a car, or had their own bank account, or held a job. In order to succeed on parole or after release, these ex-offenders need assistance addressing basic needs like housing and employment, education about life skills and coping with the daily decisions adults face in the outside world, and support in dealing with the mental and emotional challenges of re-entry.
