Prisoner Reentry: Addressing the Challenges in Weed and Seed Communities

Abstract

In order to understand the extent to which Weed and Seed sites are engaged in prisoner reentry efforts, the Department of Justice's Community Capacity Development Office, the Center for Community Safety of Winston-Salem State University, and the Urban Institute surveyed Weed and Seed sites around the country. This report summarizes the responses from the survey, illustrating the various ways that Weed and Seed sites are focusing on prisoner reentry and working with partner organizations to reduce recidivism and create safer, healthier communities.
