Their Transition Back Into Family & Society. It’s important to realize that many inmates in prison leave children behind; children who sometimes end up without another parent to look after them. Thus, the job falls to a grandparent, aunt, or even a sibling. When inmates are released from prison, their first stop is a transitional or “halfway” house. Parental inmates must choose whether to assimilate into the new family dynamic, resume their previous parental role, or remain separate from their child or children. Should parental inmates choose to reunite with their family, no matter which scenario works best, returning inmate parents may need professional help or support with this transition. Inmates have lost or missed out on many things while incarcerated (i.e. skills, knowledge, education, etc.). To gain some of these things back, inmates need to participate in focused programs and attend specialized workshops.
Housing is often the number one issue for ex-offenders re-entering communities. With limited resources, many seek transitional accommodation in the hopes of eventually finding permanent housing. Unfortunately, many become homeless, which complicates their re-entry into communities. Without shelter and a permanent mailing address, you will have difficulty finding employment, establishing credit, and handling daily routines. If you don’t have family or friends to stay with, you may need to seek transitional housing; most housing comes with eligibility and time restrictions along with wrap-around services (employment, substance abuse, mental health)
