Safe Streets and Second Chances (S3C) Initiative 5 Key Model for Reentry Program Demonstration Project  

 
       Mass incarceration continues to be a significant public health and public safety issue in the US. At the beginning of the 21st century, there was growing excitement and energy surrounding programs designed to aid the transition from prison to the community. Now well over a decade later, innovations in prisoner reentry programs have fallen into a rut as most are found to only have a negligible impact on recidivism and mass incarceration because the programs simply cannot meet the growing demands on reentry services.

       In order to disrupt the current state of poor outcomes for prisoner reentry, our team identified and are refining a program that addresses the 5 Key ingredients to successful reentry, entitled the 5 Key Model for Reentry Program. This manual was built on a review of over 100,000 program evaluations. Using the most cutting-edge research available, we selected the most potent interventions and combined them into one reentry program manual. The 5 Key Model for Reentry Program focuses on the social mobility and well-being of formerly incarcerated individuals to ensure individuals will remain crime-free and contribute positively to society. Research indicates that a focus on mobility and well-being best maximizes public health and public safety.    

      The IJRD team is currently researching and refining the 5 Key Model for Reentry Program using a demonstration project in 4 states. The research entails a randomized controlled trial and involves researchers and practitioners in its implementation and refinement process. We are hiring local teams in each state and this position is a part of one of those local teams.
