The majority of released prisoners return to live with family members. This transition is often both joyous and challenging. Positive family support is critical for release success and a key variable to reduce recidivism. Family focused re-entry programs like mentoring and family support sessions, help strengthen family ties and maintain rewarding, productive and loving relationships.

Family Support Sessions
A reentry program held in prisons and the community designed to prepare offenders and their families to successfully re-connect following separation from imprisonment.
