By the numbers:

NEW YORK STATE HAS

approximately 77,000 individuals incarcerated, at a cost of roughly $60,000 per person, per year

 

OF THOSE 77,000 INMATES,

about 95% will be released back into society, at some point, through community supervision programs like those provided by Peaceprints

ALMOST 7,000 INDIVIDUALS

are actievely released under Community Supervision in Erie County each year

WITHOUT PROGRAMMING,

recidivism rates stand at 65%.  With programming by organizations like Peaceprints, that rate drops to 27%
