The current recidivism rate in the State of Texas is 63%. This means that 63% of everyone paroled or released from Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prisons daily will return to prison within 3 years of getting out of prison and most will go back for a greater crime or crimes than their previous crimes and convictions.
Our Program Recidivism Rate is 4.6%!
Of the 238 residents that stayed in our program (90) days or longer, only 13 have lost their parole and have been sent back to prison. All of the other men are employed, with most considered good to excellent employees by their employers. Our residents' success is reflected in a recidivism rate that is consistently less than 5%!
Of the 49 non residents we have helped over the past 9 years (2007-2016), we have an ongoing relationship with 34 of them and communicate often with them throughout the year. They are all working, several have started their own companies and are doing well. Many of them have reunited with their families and are regularly attending Churches of their choice, and living productive lives.
