Children of Incarcerated Parents

 

The Second Chance Act grant programs are designed to help communities develop and implement comprehensive, evidence-based, and collaborative strategies that promote success and reduce the likelihood of recidivism of individuals returning from incarceration. “Reentry” is not a specific program, but rather a process that starts at jail or prison intake, and ends when formerly incarcerated individuals have been successfully reintegrated into their communities as law-abiding citizens. The reentry process includes the delivery of a variety of evidence-based services in both pre- and post-release settings designed to ensure that the transition to the community is successful, and to reduce the likelihood of recidivism. Mentoring of formerly incarcerated individuals can be an important element of reentry strategies that achieve these goals.
