Persons with a history of incarceration are less likely to re-offend when they are supported by family and the members of their community.

This presentation was given by Minister Dr. Glenda Clare at a church in Durham, North Carolina. The purpose of the presentation was to prepare Durham county residents to welcome formerly incarcerated persons back into the community.
