Key demographics were recently released from a study of reentry programs under the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) -- a Federal effort to help States use their correctional resources to reduce recidivism. Aimed at increasing public safety, SVORI is an unprecedented national response to the criminal justice, employment, education, health, and housing challenges that adult and juvenile offenders face when they return to the community. This article summarizes the demographics and responses of the men who participated in the 5-year SVORI program.
