States Working to Help Prisoners Reenter Society

February 8, 2024

North Carolina is the latest state to join a nascent initiative to help people who have been incarcerated successfully reenter society by providing them with expanded education, health care, and housing before and after their release. In Issues, Stefan F. LoBuglio and Anne Morrison Piehl take a deep look at the need for action, challenges involved, and how-to lessons gained from research and experience. “Unwinding mass incarceration will neither be cheap nor easy,” they write, “and to be done responsibly will require a new infrastructure of coordinated community-based facilities and services that can meet evidence-based incarceration needs while also ensuring public safety.”
