Returning to the community can be a complex transition for former offenders, who may struggle with lack of education and job skills, limited housing and family support options, and substance abuse and mental health issues. We study the challenges of prisoner reentry and initiatives to help individuals, families, and communities successfully reintegrate into society, break the cycle of incarceration, and become productive, law-abiding citizens.
Modeling Successful Reentry Practices in Colorado
Mathematica in partnership with the Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC) Division of Adult Parole and the Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab (Colorado Lab) will leverage an existing data set to examine ways to target reentry services so that they can best help reduce incarceration across the state.
