Reducing recidivism through improving reentry: A grant proposal
by Hedge, Kaitlin E., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 53; 10133978
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal is to help individuals, who have been incarcerated, to better integrate into the community and reduce the number of times the individual will come back into contact with the corrections system. This grant proposal identifies the issues which lead a person back into old behaviors and what barriers there are in the community, such as accessing services various agencies. Comprehensive case management prior to release and throughout the first year of an individual’s release can be an area that can help individuals struggling with staying out of the correction’s system through support, guidance, and bridging the gap between ex-offenders and obtaining needed services that can help one succeed.
