Developing Pathways for Successful Reintegration into the Community

It is nPathways-Reentry-Logoo secret that the growing Missouri prison population is a problem both socially and fiscally for Missouri communities. One of the major contributors to the growing statistics is that once a person becomes an inmate, they have a struggle successfully returning to society and not becoming a repeat offender. The Pathways 2 ReEntry program is focused on helping prisoners reintegrate into the community successfully, so that they can find a path that leads them to success and keeps they from become a repeat offender.

Some of the problems that prevent inmates from successfully returning to society include:

  • Two in five prison and jail inmates lack a high school diploma or it’s equivalent.
  • A large, three-state recidivism study found that less than half of released prisoners had secured a job upon their return to the community.
  • The incidence of serious mental illness is two to four times higher among prisoners than it is in the general population.
  • More than ten percent of those entering prisons and jails are homeless in the months before their incarceration. For those with mental illness, the rates are even higher – about 20 percent. Released prisoners with a history of shelter use were almost five times as likely to have a post-release shelter stay.

The mission of the Pathways 2 ReEntry program is successful offender reentry back into the community. To accomplish this mission, we have established the following goals:

  • To develop “Pathways” to successful reintegration for adult offenders.
