The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world; in 2008, for every 100,000 citizens, 764 were in jails or prisons. Nearly half of ex-convicts commit crimes following release, a statistic which has given rise to support programs that facilitate successful reintegration to society outside of prison. This directory offers a compilation of ex-offender programs run by the national government as well as by individual states. Addresses, phone numbers and web sites are listed for all organizations that aid the ex-convict in locating employment, housing, support groups, clothing and food. A vital resource for both organizations and individuals interested in facilitating the reintegration of released offenders.
