The Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) supports innovative reentry programs at the state and community level. As part of this effort, the National Institute of Justice is funding a five-year evaluation of SVORI programs conducted by RTI International and the Urban Institute. This article, published in the October 2007 issue of the NIJ Journal, is a summary of program participant's demographics as well as information on a control group of non-SVORI participants. This information is the result of interviews just prior to release with incarcerated men and includes their responses to questions about their needs and expectations post-release.
