The Dedicated Ex-Prisoner's Guide for Getting Through the Halfway House: 10 Things to Do to Make Your Rehabilitative Stay Short, Productive, & Profita (Paperback)
Every year, thousands of prisoners get released from jails and prisons into halfway houses, with a large percentage of them being sent back to lockup for violating rules or procedures. Halfway houses are an extremely important component to successful reentry into society for ex-prisoners, and it does a great disservice not only to the individuals being sent back but to society as a whole whenever this occurs, regardless of the reasons why it occurs, since those prisoners will still be released within a short time period anyway but without the crucial preparatory advantages that halfway houses provide. Being sent back to lockup after being at a halfway house can be a very devastating experience for prisoners and their loved ones.
This to-the-point guide was written by an ex-prisoner who served years in prison and was released to a halfway house and made it through successfully, going on to become a very accomplished entrepreneur and businessman. It provides much-needed inside info to halfway house pre-residents and residents on how to not only make it through the halfway house successfully, but also how to utilize the time spent there in the best, most productive ways possible.
With being released from lockup as soon as possible and never going back as the ultimate goals, this succinct little guidebook, which is small and compact enough to be carried around in a pocket as a daily reminder, is a tremendous asset to halfway house pre-residents and residents. It is a necessary, wisdom-packed literary tool for successful independent living for those who have been incarcerated. The info within this guide, if utilized, will greatly assist in the general maintaining of ex-prisoners' freedom.
