New on Policy for Results! Promoting Workforce Strategies for Reintegrating Ex-offenders

When ex-offenders are productively engaged in their communities - working and supporting their families - the community is safer and their families are more economically secure.

As a part of its commitment to ensuring that all children grow up in safe, supportive and economically successful families, the Center for the Study of Social Policy has developed a new section on PolicyforResults and a corresponding report that focus specifically on promoting workforce strategies for reintegrating ex-offenders.

The information in this section is designed to support policymakers in their efforts to ensure that all families have access to the supports they need to be successful and economically secure. In addition to facts about the issue, the new section includes policy strategies that states can use to promote successful transitions to work for ex-offenders and in doing so reduce recidivism rates – leading to safer communities for all children.
