KPRC: These Houston-area groups rehabilitate, help former inmates to prevent re-incarceration
October 13, 2020
Thank you KPRC/Channel 2 in Houston for featuring the Center for Justice Research’s research in their article on reentry after incarceration. From the article:
“According to the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition, more than 70,000 people return to the community from Texas prisons each year. More than 1 million people cycle through Texas county jails according to the Center for Justice Research at Texas Southern University.
But when they return to society, formerly incarcerated people often struggle with a lack of access to jobs, housing and getting help for issues that didn’t go away during their incarceration like treatment for addiction and mental health issues.”
