Today, there are nearly 2.3 million people incarcerated in America’s prisons and jails. Each year 25% will return to their community—and within three years 67% will be rearrested. When individuals leave prison, they face a daunting challenge of successful re-entry. They often have a limited job history and poor social networks.
