The Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) supports innovative reentry programs at the state and community level. Because fully implemented SVORI programs incorporate assessment, services, and programming for offenders while incarcerated, under supervision in the community, and once released from supervision, measuring their success is a challenge for researchers. In this paper, published in the August 2006 issue of Western Criminology Review, researchers from RTI International and the Urban Institute suggest an approach for categorizing the types of services being provided to program participants so that the extent to which SVORI programs have increased access to services can be determined.
