Description

#6022  Ex-offenders come from all walks of life, including the military. Often making bad decisions relating to substance abuse and further complicated by mental health issues, many people ruin their lives forever through choice, not chance. Others learn to change their lives for good.

Most need professional help along the way, which is often spotty and of questionable quality and consequences. While locking up offenders and spending $20,000+ (young offenders) to $70,000+ (older offenders) a year to keep them idle, bored, and angry behind bars makes some criminal justice sense, failure to deal with critical re-entry issues is simply stupid public policy.

Indeed, within three years of release, nearly 70% of all ex-offenders are re-arrested and over 50% return to prisons and jails to repeat what has become a predictable costly and debilitating cycle that impacts on families and communities in may ways.

Along with acquiring housing, health care, credit, documents, and stable relationships, finding and keeping a good job remains one of the most important re-entry challenges for ex-offenders.

With nearly 2.2 million individuals locked up in U.S. state and federal prisons and another 10 to 12 million passing through jails and detention centers (city and county) each year, millions of military veterans find themselves caught up in a dysfunctional criminal justice system as well as become participants in a vicious cycle of recidivism.

Recently several state prison systems have developed special re-entry programs for their veteran populations. Fortunately, more and more jails and prisons are focusing on incarcerated veterans as they attempt to prepare them for a new and productive life on the outside – literally turning them into taxpayers rather than tax burdens.

If you work with veterans in prison, or know someone who needs your help, here are the definitive resources on ex-offender re-entry for veterans. Widely used in pre- and post-release programs, these resources can make a big difference in the lives of ex-offenders.
