There are several strategies that can be used to support prisoners in re-entry, including:

Providing job training and employment assistance: This can help individuals find gainful employment upon release, which can reduce the likelihood of recidivism.

Offering education and vocational training: This can help individuals acquire the skills they need to succeed in the workforce, and can also help to improve their self-esteem and self-worth.

Providing housing assistance:

This can include providing temporary or permanent housing for individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness upon release.

Facilitating access to mental health and substance abuse treatment: Many incarcerated individuals have a history of mental health or substance abuse issues, and treatment can be an important component of their re-entry plan.

Providing case management and mentoring services: This can help individuals navigate the various systems and services they will encounter upon release and can also help to provide emotional support and guidance.

Building relationships and networking with community agencies and organizations can help provide a network of support for individuals as they re-enter their community.

Addressing trauma and providing trauma-informed care: Trauma is prevalent among people who have been incarcerated, and it is crucial to provide care that addresses their traumatic experiences.

Ultimately, the key to successful re-entry is to create a comprehensive and coordinated system of support that addresses the individual’s physical, emotional, and practical needs and helps connect them with the resources and opportunities they need to rebuild their lives.
