Facilitating Re-Entry: A Prison-Based Case Managed Re-Entry Program for Low Income Pregnant Women and New Mothers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Estimates indicate that one in four women enters the correctional system either pregnant or having recently delivered, with 6-10% pregnant at the time of incarceration, a number deemed to be low because many jails do not routinely screen for pregnancy. Services for incarcerated pregnant women and mothers are often minimal. A community-based organization (CBO) has implemented an innovative program to serve this population in an urban women’s jail. Staff members located inside the jail provide parenting education and case management to help women develop skills to make the successful transition from prison to home and to provide support to those caring for the women’s children. Case-management and supportive services are provided to mothers for one year post-release. Since 2006, the program has served over 500 women. This paper will report on the results of an implementation evaluation based on structured interviews with key agency staff to highlight the challenges faced when implementing such a program in a jail environment. Evaluation data on issues related to social support, perinatal depression, parenting knowledge, job training and education as well as recidivism will also be presented. The program’s promising results underscore the potential benefits for women and their families returning home from jail.
