The United States has less than 5% of the world's population, but an estimated 25% of the world's incarcerated population; many of whom have a history of substance, physical or sexual abuse. Millions of individuals and families are negatively affected by incarceration. Correctional facilities lack rehabilitative services and the inevitable separation of imprisonment itself causes families to suffer. Upon release, former prisoners face a multitude of barriers that reduce successful reentry into society. Many former prisoners are restricted in the areas of employment, housing and public assistance due to felony convictions. These legal barriers must be eliminated so former prisoners will have a chance at a successful and healthy life. The purpose of this grant is to initiate an advocacy training program, Eliminating Invisible Bars, for former female prisoners participating with A New Way of Life Reentry Project. The grant writer selected the Liberty Hill Foundation to fund this program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of the project.
