700,000 prisoners are released each year in the U.S. Currently, 2/3 of those inmates are re-arrested within 3 years of their release. Prison recidivism is significantly reduced when an ex-offender is able to find a legitimate source of income before he or she resorts to an illegitimate source of income. The Church and people of faith play an enormous role in providing solutions to this problem. Please join us for this very important discussion.
