Returning Citizens & Reentry
The Nehemiah Project’s Commitment to Reentry
Every year over 700,000 individuals are released from our nation’s jails and prisons. These men and women are returning daily to our towns and communities, and the number of them who return to a life of crime and additional prison time continues to rise. As part of the District of Columbia’s effort to achieve and preserve public safety by reducing recidivism rates, as well as promote the successful reintegration of returning prisoners into their families and our communities, the Nehemiah Project in collaboration with the GEO Group is engaged in efforts both inside and outside prison walls to promote public safety by assisting these men and women in managing a successful reentry into society.
