Correction of behavior and a better life is the purpose of sending people to prison.
Unfortunately, Incarceration often plays out like a hereditary disease. Those imprisoned once show a predisposition towards being incarcerated again. Reentry programs help prevent recidivism and allow clients to become integrated, productive members of society.
Recidivism is often more common than it should be if offenders have had a fair chance of integrating back into the community.
Reentry programs help incarcerated individuals successfully return to society to reduce recidivism and improve public safety.
These programs focus on breaking down barriers recently incarcerated individuals might encounter and helping them find employment, affordable housing, healthcare, and support for their families. Because reentry is not a simple process and has so many facets, it involves several people to design effective reentry plans for offenders, each of whom is unique in their:.

Why are Reentry programs necessary?
Acquiring skills and training will allow offenders to get recruited for jobs and be able to perform their jobs. This is particularly important for offenders getting out of prison after longer sentences, as they have no skills and need case managers' assistance to get jobs. Reentry programs are critical in ensuring offenders can move from prisons to communities by navigating the challenges presented to them.
Reentry also improves public safety. Nearly two million adults are incarcerated in state prisons and local jails. Nationally, two out of every three people released from state prisons are rearrested for a new offense and about half are reincarcerated within three years. Reducing recidivism is critical for increasing long-term public safety and lowering corrections costs for the state.
