Program Summary:
Twelfth Street's re-entry program specifically targets men and women who have been released from the penal system. The Prison-to-Workforce Program (re-entry program) was created in 2010 to create and support employment opportunities for ex-offenders re-entering society, as well as providing supportive services to improve their chances for success. Studies show that without effective re-entry programs, recidivdism will remain high.

Twelfth Street's re-entry program specifially creates opportunities to reduce the likelihood of ex-offenders returing to prison.
