The Multi-site Evaluation of the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative

Abstract

The Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) funded 69 agencies in 2003 to develop programs to improve criminal justice, employment, education, health, and housing outcomes for released prisoners. These programs were to conduct assessments and provide participants programs and services during and after incarceration. The SVORI Multi-site Evaluation, awarded to RTI International and The Urban Institute by the National Institute of Justice, examined the extent to which SVORI program participation improved access to appropriate, comprehensive, integrated services and resulted in better outcomes. Additional volumes regarding the findings of this evaluation are available at http://www.svori-evaluation.org/.
