Spirit of Fear & Reverence of God
Every year, approximately 700,000 men and women are released from U.S. Prisons. That's the equivalent of about 2,000 ex-prisoners a day returning to communities across the country.
Going home after being in prison is a very challenging transition for most newly-released prisoners, as well as their families and communities. Recidivism studies show that without intervention, two-thirds of those released will return to prison within three years. Prisoners often go back to prison not because they commit a crime, but because they violate parole.
Recidivism is frequently related to medical issues and/or substance abuse. For example, a person may be diagnosed with a medical or psychiatric problem and given medication while in prison. But when released, that medical or psychiatric care is discontinued. Many resort to using alcohol or other drugs to self-medicate, thereby violating their terms of parole and eventually being rearrested.
To break this cycle, an effective reentry "Task Force" ministry must consider the needs in all areas of the returning citizen's life:
Finding employment goes beyond securing necessary income it also better prepares former offenders to fulfill mainstream roles by providing structure, responsibility, and an opportunity to build one's character and reduce recidivism.
