A group of convicted felons that served 15 to 20 years in prison are about to be released. Many of
these convicts have been diagnosed as mentally ill, victims of mental and physical abusive and
lived in homes with drug addicted parents. None of these convicts have high school diplomas or
job skills because they never held a job for more than a few months and have been committing
crimes since childhood. The policy that will be developed is to help transition soon-to-be-released
felons into society to prevent them from reoffending and the return to the Criminal Justice system.
Prisoner reentry is a serious issue.
Factors that influence reentry:
Lack of support
Lack of education
Drug/Alcohol abuse and/or addiction
Project Rio (Texas) 2004

obtain necessary documents
Post Release: Job placement assistance
