Road to Reentry

Why Our Work is Important

The number of women behind bars is increasing at a statistically higher rate than that of men, primarily  due to mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses. This number includes nearly one million women per year since the beginning of the New Millennium. The vast majority of this population of women eventually will be released and unfortunately more than half will not find success reentering their communities.

As such, the recidivism rate is disproportionately higher for these at-risk women who do not find employment following release from prison or jail versus those who do. When former female ex-offenders find and maintain positive social interactions through work, the likelihood of returning to former lifestyles for financial and emotional support is dramatically reduced, as is the recidivism rate.

Utilizing best practices as well as evidence-based practice in criminal justice policy reform and program development, Reentry Center for Women seeks to reduce the female prison population by providing the necessary self-sufficiency skills to female parolees.
