Ohio Prisoners' Reflections on Returning Home


This policy brief presents the findings from surveys of 424 male prisoners serving time in Ohio facilities, who were interviewed as part of the multi-site research study Returning Home: Understanding the Challenges of Prisoner Reentry. The respondents, who were within 30 days of release and returning to the Cleveland community, reported on their experiences and expectations across a range of issue areas, including education, employment, financial support, substance use, health, family, and faith. Based on these findings, this policy brief details the histories and anticipated needs of this population as they re-enter society and sketches the policy implications for practitioners, community stakeholders, and policymakers.
