The Challenges of Re-entry

As discussed in a recent story in The Crime Report:

There is “reasonable concern about the obstacles and challenges that confront people who have been incarcerated for years, isolated from a changing world, separated from families and home communities by hundreds of miles, having to overcome barriers imposed by a criminal conviction, in an environment short on needed services…”

This is not a small problem – Federal prisons alone release 50,000 people a year. In response to reentry issues the DOJ and Attorney General Loretta Lynch have announced an overhaul of federal prison practices, issuing a “Roadmap to Reentry” declaring that individualized reentry plans should be prepared for federal inmates as soon as they enter prison.
