Ohio Prisoners' Reflections on Returning Home

Group: Urban Institute

URL: http://www.publicsafety.ohio.gov/links/ocjs_ReentryReturningHome.pdf

Description

This report presents findings from surveys completed by 424 males shortly before their release from Ohio prisons and their return to Cuyahoga County. We present descriptive statistics regarding respondents’ criminal histories; substance use; employment backgrounds; current health problems; in-prison programming experiences; relationships with family members; and expectations for release. Overall, these findings describe a population with extensive histories of substance use and criminal behavior, yet strong family ties and great optimism for their return home.
