The Reentry Project was a collaborative news initiative about the challenges of —- and solutions to -— prisoner reentry in Philadelphia, reporting from November, 2016 through March, 2018.

This site represents an unprecedented collaboration among 15 of the city’s general interest newsrooms and community and ethnic media organizations that came together to reveal and investigate credible responses to the challenges of recidivism and reentry.

Supported by the Solutions Journalism Network, the Knight Foundation and Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University, this project sought to advance the conversation on reentry by exploring the social and economic toll of high recidivism rates and by highlighting models that demonstrate promise in facilitating a successful transition for returning citizens.
