Prison sentences vary depending on the crime committed. When sentences come to an end, prisoners return to society. Society does not just accept these prisoners back into everyday life with open arms. This paper explores the challenges incarcerated individuals experience when they reenter society after incarceration? The discussion focuses on the different challenges that these individuals face in their battle of entering back into society and being accepted by individuals in the communities they return to. Some key elements will focus on how reentry affects work, housing, rehabilitation and relationships.
