ANNOTATION: “Each year, more than 700,000 individuals are released from state and federal prisons. Another 9 million cycle through local jails. When reentry fails, the costs—both societal and economic—are high … Because reentry intersects with issues of health and housing, education and employment, family, faith, and community well-being, many federal agencies are focusing on the reentry population with initiatives that aim to improve outcomes in each of these areas” (p. 3). This annotated bibliography addresses issues surrounding the reentry of offenders into the community. 135 entries are organized according to: reentry websites; reentry in general; reentry by category for community corrections, jails, prisons, community and family support, employment and housing, health and safety, and special populations; and reentry skills building.
