Of the 61,000 men released from Texas prisons each year, roughly 13,000 call Houston home. These men often face skill deficits and have many needs. To understand the factors contributing to successful reentry and inform policies to ensure a safer return for both prisoners and the communities in which they reside, the Urban Institute conducted a study of 210 men exiting Texas prisons and returning to the Houston area. This report presents findings from three waves of interviews with these men, conducted shortly before and at two points after their release.
