#8630 The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world; in 2008, for every 100,000 citizens, 764 were in jails or prisons. With nearly half of ex-convicts committing crimes after their release, numerous support programs exist to facilitate their successful reintegration to society.
Finally, in light of this enormous need that we face, a state-by-state directory that identifies ex-offender support programs run by federal and state governments (including Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Washington, DC). Jam-packed with addresses, phone numbers, and websites for all organizations that aid ex-offenders in locating employment, housing, support groups, clothing, and food.
A vital resource for both organizations and individuals interested in the rehabilitation of released offenders.
