Stories of Transition: Men and Women in the Allegheny County Jail Collaborative's Reentry Program

This report is written for those individuals working with ex-offenders reentering the community. They are people who want “to understand what the experience of reentry is like for the people behind the statistics - the men and women who are in the midst of their transition from jail ... to hear their stories, including the struggles, their reflections and their advice for others... Their memories of their experiences in jail are still fresh, and they spoke openly with [the author] about the help they received and the challenges they faced during jail and since their release” (p. 1-2). There is also a brief description about the Allegheny County Jail Collaborative’s Reentry Program.
