  4. The Essential Role of Private Voluntary Groups in Rehabilitating Offenders

    McFarland, Steven T.
    America spends $40 billion annually on warehousing prisoners, yet two-thirds of them return to prison. Clearly a new model and new partners are desperately needed. Director McFarland addresses how faith-based and community organizations (FBCO) can partner legally with state corrections?
