Louisiana incarcerates more people than any other state in America! Currently 34,000 people are in our prisons/local jails. Approximately 60% of these parents have children age 10 or younger. Each year 15,000 people return back to local communities from our prisons and local jails. These Moms, Dads, Vets and Young Adults have an enormous challenge of obtaining employment and housing as they reunite with their families. For this reason Re-Entry Solutions for Louisiana was formed in April of 2010.
Statistics shows that persons with a strong support system employment and a strong spiritual base are less likely to return to prison. Re-Entry Solutions focus on ensuring these three components are a constant for our members.
3.) Restoration of the human spirit with family preservations for our members.
Our name says it all, “Were about providing solution for persons."
“To unite with existing community resources, and develop needed resources to ensure the needs of our returning citizens and U.S. Veterans are met to “Break the Cycle of Return to Prions/ Jail.”
Re - Entering into local communities after release from local jails, prisons, or return from service in our armed forces.
