Intervention. Operations. Training. Development.
Three of the most critical issues in determining whether an ex-prisoner can successfully re-enter society and maintain a successful life are: #1 Training, #2 Employment and #3 Education. Studies clearly and unanimously show that prisons fail horribly at providing reentry services to offenders scheduled for release simply because it’s not what they do; they are not in the business of rehabilitation, they’re in the business of confinement.
Therefore, there is neither interest nor appreciation for quality (or even adequate) reentry services. Inmates scheduled for release are offered poor quality cut-and-paste pre-release services 30 to 60 days before release, usually trained by another inmate (with no clue of dated techniques) or staffs with no clue of societal adjustments in the areas where the inmates will be released; which, in reality, means they leave prisonwithout a genuine formula for success, almost destined to fail and reoffend.
