BENEFITING: STAND INC
In October 2014, STAND, Inc. will celebrate 15 years of providing dedicated services to individuals impacted by reenty, substance abuse and domestic violence. It is our goal to host a solutions-based symposium to educate and bring awareness to the community in the specific areas of reentry and domestic violence.
Between 1990 and 2011, Georgia’s prison population more than doubled to nearly 56,000 inmates. State spending on corrections soared as well, from $492 million to more than $1 billion annually. 95% of all incarcerated individuals will be released at some point. STAND, Inc. provides a menu of evidenced based reentry services aimed at giving our participants an opportunity to realize a social gains that they don’t desire to lose; that’s what makes us effective.
