    Rebuild Confidence and Maximize Potential

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Reentry Prerelease Program is specifically designed to prepare offenders to be productively involved in their communities, the workplace, and society.

    The Reentry Prerelease Program was developed to fulfill a critical component of prerelease practices*. It will help ensure a successful transition by equipping offenders with the basic knowledge and skills needed to reintegrate into the community. The curriculum supports positive individual change by providing practice activities designed to improve the ability to use and process information, develop a positive attitude and moral compass, and accept rules and regulations.
