dc.description.abstractThis 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 reentering their communities. The researcher examined the relationship between age and the various needs and barriers that may affect an individual’s success when released from jail. Results showed that none of these relationships were statistically significant. However, frequency statistics displayed an overwhelming need for family support, regardless of age. The need for education, and safe and stable housing in order to avoid recidivism were also observed, regardless of age. Participants tended to perceive unemployment and unsupportive family relationships to be the most challenging barriers to successful reintegration into society. It is recommended that reentry plans adequately address both needs and barriers to better prepare inmates for release, especially regarding family work.
