Study Examines Prisoners' Reentry Needs

Abstract

Funded by the Departments of Justice, Labor, Education, Housing and Urban Development, and Health and Human Services, the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) supports innovative reentry programs at the state and community level. This article, published in the April 2008 issue of Corrections Today, highlighted data on the types of offenders in the programs and their needs. This information, the result of interviews with incarcerated male offenders, focused on what adult men believe they will need after their release from prison. Also included in the article are initial findings on reentry outcomes for SVORI participants.
