The Lionheart Foundation regularly receives emails and calls from concerned family and friends of incarcerated adults who are due to be released from prison. Thousands of inmates are released each year without access to, or knowledge of, the support networks to help them transition back into society. We have compiled a list of reentry programs below, listed by state, to help people connect with the services or contacts they might need.
Avoiding Recidivism Through Reentry Programs & Services
The massive prison population is a major national crisis. Taking a proactive stance, Lionheart is committed to reducing recidivism and playing an integral part in redefining our nation’s prisons as places for healing and positive growth. More than 170,000 copies of the book, Houses of Healing, have been donated in state and federal prisons as well as larger county jails nationwide. Approximately half of these have been distributed free of charge to prison and jail libraries, prison programs, and individual prisoners.
The Lionheart Foundation’s Houses of Healing (HOH) program has had a life-changing impact for thousands of the men and women across the country involved in the criminal justice system, providing them with the skills needed for successful reentry into the community.
