Moving Home - Prison to Community Pipeline
In 2015, approximately 17,000 individuals were released to community supervision from New York State prisons. Sixty-one percent of those released reported having children. The “children” presented here may refer to children who are the age of minors (under 18) or older. Regardless of their age, we have come to learn that the impact of a parent’s incarceration influences an individual throughout childhood and well into adulthood.
