Prisoner Reentry

Must read article on “Barriers to Prison Reentry” by Patricia McKernan

https://www.voa.org/homelessness-and-prisoner-reentry

Here is a important quote from this article:

“Each year approximately 700,000 individuals return home from state prisons in the United States and an additional 9 million are released from county jails. More than 10% of those coming in and out of prisons and jails are homeless in the months preceding and following their incarceration (Council of State Governments, 2016). Being homeless, unstably housed, or living in a high crime neighborhood all heighten an individual’s risk of reoffending (Andrews & Bonta, 1995).”
