Default Frequent Questions about Communities and Families and Re-Entry

Frequently Asked Questions about Communities and Families Involved with the Criminal Justice System

The National Reentry Resource Center recently published a set of frequently asked questions about the involvement of communities and families in the criminal justice system. The FAQ, prepared by the NRRC’s Committee on Communities and Families, is one in a series of FAQ publications on the range of issues related to prison and jail reentry.

More than half of all people in prison are a parent to a minor child—an estimated 1.7 million children in the U.S. have a parent in prison. Research on family involvement indicates that people who engage more with their families while incarcerated and after their release recidivate less frequently and experience other positive outcomes—such as finding housing and employment—at a higher rate than people who do not maintain contact with their families. Addressing community and family engagement of people reentering communities through comprehensive reentry planning and coordinating transitional services has the potential to improve post-release outcomes, including stronger families and communities.

This FAQ, written for reentry practitioners and people who are currently and formerly incarcerated, as well as their families, friends, and community, covers a range of issues related to reentry. It describes current research, challenges to reentry and family reunification, and best practices for improving reentry outcomes, including examples of effective programs and policies that support successful reentry. The FAQ is meant to be a “living” document that will be updated as new information becomes available.
