From 2015 through 2018, the Foundation engaged in a strategic Prison Reentry Initiative.


In 2015 Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation launched a three-year, $3 million Prison Reentry Initiative (PRI) to dramatically reduce the recidivism rate in Louisiana. The Foundation collaborated with The Rensselaerville Institute (TRI) to create a framework to guide the work. This section contains an archive of materials developed for the PRI.

The PRI framework was illustrated in two parts: a Strategic Map and Results Trails. The Strategic Map was a visual representation of the PRI Grant Guidelines that connected strategy to impact and defined results for key stakeholders. The Results Trails provided metrics to measure results across grantees. The Trails show incremental changes in behavior and attitude of stakeholders and illustrated activities provided to support participants achieve success.

Although the PRI has ended, the Foundation continues to support prison reentry programs and projects. PRI guiding documents and technical assistance materials are provided here as a resource to organizations engaging in this work.
