As part of the Reentry Campaign, the Urban Institute conducted a national scan of reentry programs that are addressing the needs and risks facing returning prisoners, their families, and communities. In order to identify programs for this report, the Urban Institute developed a series of advisory groups of nationallevel experts to nominate programs that are implementing notable or innovative approaches to easing the reentry process. (See the list of advisory group members in the Appendix.) Recommendations were also made by the Faith Advisory Committee that is working with the Reentry Campaign and by The Annie E. Casey Foundation. Urban Institute then followed up with each of the nominated programs to learn more about their organizations, the services they provide to individuals who were formerly incarcerated and their families, and any outcomes of their work. Those programs that focused squarely on the issue of prisoner reentry were included in this report and organized into the following categories: Education & Employment Health Housing Family Public Safety Faith
