Short Synopsis
Beyond Bars is the most current, practical, and comprehensive guide for ex-convicts and their families about managing a successful reentry into the community.

Full Synopsis
The United States has the largest criminal justice system in the world, with currently over 7 million adults and juveniles in jail, prison, or community custody. Because they spend enough time in prison to disrupt their connections to their families and their communities, they are not prepared for the difficult and often life-threatening process of reentry. As a result, the percentage of these people who return to a life of crime and additional prison time escalates each year. Beyond Bars is the most current, practical, and comprehensive guide for ex-convicts and their families about managing a successful reentry into the community and includes:

● Tips on how to prepare for release while still in prison

● Ways to deal with family members, especially spouses and children

● Finding a job

● Money issues such as budgets, bank accounts, taxes, and debt

● Avoiding drugs and other illicit activities

● Free resources to rely on for support
