The high incarceration rate in America is the highest, and this means that many
people pass through this system. The problem with the system though is that most often after
coming back from jail the society somehow finds it difficult to accept you. These kinds of
societal denial have an influence to their socioeconomic lifestyles. Every so often, the inmates
are rejected for job applications, which may lead them to apply for low-level jobs or worse, lead
them back to the streets.
A non-profit organization has proposed to house these inmates for a six months period
while they work to earn some stipend. The six months period is a sufficient time to learn a few
skills necessary for job employment. For sustainability the inmates will be required to work on
their to pay for the maintenance of the resources. However, this might not be possible because of
the difficulty’s inmates go through to find jobs.
Mission and Visions

time has passed since they were out, they will need sometime to readjust. The mission of the
organization is to protect the inmates from social judgement and offer them with the necessary
tools that will help them in finding jobs and be independent.

should be rehabilitated back into the society. It sets a focus in offering solutions on how the
government can solve the issue of inmates’ life after prison. This is through training on special
skills and new techniques that will help them as they seek for their sustainability.

idea as they continue their rehabilitation process. This also protects the prove the harsh
judgments by the society.
Key to success
The key to success involves policies that are well defined and easy to implement. The
strategic approach and the cost-effectiveness of the project will involve finding ways to be able
to sustain the specified number of inmates for the duration of their stay. Therefore, the following
are the steps taken to ensure this success.
i) Strategic Alliances.
A simple plan can be devised where inmates work as they are housed. This can be
achieved through partnerships with other organizations that offer employment. This way the
inmates get some income and a percentage is given back into the project.
i) Psycho-social Counselling
Community counselors will be contracted to help in psychosocial counselling. Their main
objective is to stabilize the psychosocial aspect of these individuals. By organizing social
counselling groups, the inmates might share their fears and find ways to fight these fears.

Through proper assessment and continuous psychoanalysis, a decision can be made on the
approaches to use when dealing with the inmates. Data collected are analyzed and the progress of
every inmate with relation to the approach used is recorded. This is important for the
stakeholders in policymaking.

The institution in conjunction with other partners will sponsor workshops and training
programs focused at giving the inmates skills and ideas of how to be self-dependent. The
workshops are crucial as from there they can know what field to specialize.

prisons. Problems follow through even after the inmates have served their sentences. One of the
challenges is that the inmates find it hard getting back into the society because of stigmatization,

their feet by offering them with a safe place to stay and work after being released from the justice
system. This is an initiative by non-profit organization 501 c 3, located at halfway house in East
St Louis Illinois. Address 1126 Cleveland Ave East St Louis II 62201. The house is cost
effective since it will act as both a residential place and workplace.
