Programs for Systemic Change:
Reentry 72: Meeting Returning Citizens Upon Release
The purpose of Reentry 72 is to provide employment assessment, temporary employment and empowerment services to ex-offenders before their release from prison, within 72 hours of release from prison, and also for 30 days post-release. Statistical studies document that the first 72 hours are the most critical in assessing risks and addressing needs to prevent recidivism.
