How Miles of Freedom Helps Reduce the Impact of Mass Incarceration

Mass Incarceration in Texas

Mass incarceration refers to the large-scale imprisonment of individuals, often characterized by high rates of imprisonment and a large prison population. As of 2020, Texas had an estimated 120,000 people incarcerated in its prison system. This places Texas second in prison populations in the United States. According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the state’s incarceration rate is higher than the national average (3.58 per 1000), with an estimated 4 in every 1000 Texans incarcerated.

Miles of Freedom (MOF) is dedicated to easing the difficult transition from imprisonment back into the “free world”. MOF offers various programs and services that are adjusted to assist those who are often labeled and outcasted. Do you need assistance creating a positive avenue to reduce your chances of re-entry into jail or prison?  MOF’s Re-Entry Assistance Program is right for you.

How Miles of Freedom is Helping with Re-Entry

Miles of Freedom offers three valuable subsets under our Re-Entry Assistance Program:

  • Case management
  • Job readiness
  • Transition to Employment

Our case management services help ease into re-entry by providing a network of resources for formerly incarcerated individuals. MOF provides these individuals with assistance with:

  • Basic necessities
  • Job hunting (resume, application, interview, referral, and job search assistance)
  • Employment retention support

Our Job Readiness Workshop provides evidence-based strategies. Our JRW meets weekly with trained professionals to improve your career readiness. When individuals are ready for the job, they can keep the job.

Transition to Employment is critical to reduce recidivism. Our program offers participants access to income, workforce coaching, and mentorship. MOF has city, commercial, and residential contracts to provide agricultural labor.
