Maryland Pilot Study: Findings from Baltimore

Abstract

This is the final technical report for a pilot study of <i>Returning Home: Understanding the Challenges of Prisoner Reentry</i>. The study examined the process of prisoner reentry within the city of Baltimore. It involved self-administered surveys with 324 male and female prisoners. The study's purpose was both to examine the process of prisoner reintegration in Baltimore; as well as to test our survey instruments and research design in preparation for implementation of the study in three full-study sites. The report's purpose is to inform policymakers and service providers about how released prisoners navigate these challenges of reentry.
