The long-term impact of a criminal record can keep many people from getting a job, a place to live, and a stable lifestyle. Without supports, many relapse into criminal behavior. We study programs and approaches to prevent rearrest, reconviction, and return to prison after release and help people change their behavior to re-enter society successfully. These initiatives aim to reduce recidivism as well as high correctional costs through improvements in health, family relationships, job skills, education, finances, and other key factors.
