What is the Need?

Incarceration is a growing problem.

1 in 100 American adults are in jail or prison The US is leading the world in incarceration of adults with 2.5 million inmates.

Incarceration is expensive.

The average cost of incarceration per inmate is $30,000 and is going up faster than state budgets can meet.

Incarceration alone is not effective.

In 2008, 41% of total admissions to Colorado prisons were people who had been revoked from parole and returned to prison. Of this group, 73% were returned due to a technical violation of their parole.
