We are advocating that our state adopt the Missouri Reentry process; A common sense approach to Corrections and Juvenile Justice.
Look through this information and read about the Missouri Reentry process. We are sure you will agree we need to adopt the program and reduce victimization, recidivism, and save tax dollars!
This process affords the offender services that will empower them to become better citizens so that upon their release they do not commit crimes.
Clinical Assistance for Drug Abuse & Dependency
Mandatory G.E.D/ High School Diploma for the incarcerated.
Mandatory Trades & Vocations for Offenders.
Employ-ability Training & Job Search
Housing search/ assistance before End of sentence
Giving the offender the tools they need to become successful citizens before the exit the facilities.
Some of these services can be acquired at some of the states facilities, but adopting the Missouri Reentry Process at a state level affords these services and more to many more individuals, correctional institutions/ agencies.
The Department of Corrections alone cannot effectively address all issues offenders face upon release into the community. Therefore, by forming strategic and tactical partnerships through liaisons & steering committees to provide needed and comprehensive social service help.
These factors included substance abuse, medical and mental health, transportation, education, employment, housing, family, and information sharing. Data reflects that when these factors are addressed by a comprehensive case management plan with links to the community, offenders are more likely to be successful, thus, communities are safer. The Missouri Reentry Process is a common sense approach to Corrections and Juvenile Justice.
