dc.description.abstractIncarceration has tremendous societal, financial, and moral costs to society, and the families and individuals within it. When individuals are released from prison or jail, they may face many challenges when reintegrating back into their communities, including finding appropriate housing, continuing education, or obtaining employment. They may also need assistance with family and peer relationships, chemical dependency, and learning healthy ways to cope with stress. This quantitative study was developed to identify the needs of male inmates upon release from a county correctional facility. Additionally, these individuals identified obstacles that they may face when re-entering their communities. Results will reveal what needs and barriers hold the most importance for the participants, as well as discuss any significant differences that may exist between an older, and a younger group of men. It is recommended that re-entry plans adequately address both needs and barriers to better prepare inmates for release.
