Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the nation. Research show that 95% of people in prison will be released, but only 1 in 3 will be arrest-free three years later, creating a cycle of incarceration that costs the state in both dollars and community safety. Furthermore, once someone is released from prison, there is a mountain of challenges to overcome to reintegrate into the community. With Oklahoma’s immensely high incarceration rate, the Community Service Council’s Tulsa Reentry One-Stop is doing its part to break the cycle of incarceration by helping people just out of prison develop career pathways in high demand occupations that lead to successful reintegration and reduce the chance of returning to prison.
In September 2019, CSC announced that 12 of our Reentry participants received their professional certifications in welding and/or forklifting.
