Formerly incarcerated individuals face many barriers on the path to productive, successful lives.
Formerly incarcerated individuals face many barriers on the path to productive, successful lives. The Foundation aims to reduce the number of people who return to prison and increase the cost savings associated with successful reintegration. The Foundation supports projects that create a continuum of care, including education, job readiness, life and soft skills training, financial literacy, parenting, family reunification, and efforts to integrate “smart on crime” principles.
The Foundation engaged in a Prison Reentry Initiative from 2015 through 2018. The report Creating a Continuum of Care for the Formerly Incarcerated reflects on the transformations, the achievements, and the learnings of the Foundation and Partners in the Initiative. Although the Initiative has ended, the Foundation continues to support prison reentry programs and projects. An archive of Prison Reentry Initiative guiding documents and technical assistance materials is available on the Archived Resources page.
