Correct Care Solutions Partners with Sedgwick County on Inmate Re- entry Program
Wichita, Kansas – Today, Correct Care Solutions joined Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter as he announced the Sedgwick County Offender Re-Entry (SCORE) Program. Under the sheriff’s leadership, numerous community organizations will work together to ensure incarcerated men and women have the support they need to re-enter the Wichita community. CCS will provide necessary medical care for inmates inside the detention facility so that they are able to improve their health while incarcerated and continue any necessary treatment once they are released.
“Correct Care Solutions is proud to partner with Sedgwick County on the SCORE Program,” said Jorge Dominicis, Chief Executive Officer of CCS. “Re-entry programs help to ensure a safe and successful return to the community and are crucial tools in breaking the cycle of recidivism. We applaud Sheriff Easter on his leadership.”
The most recent study of recidivism showed about two-thirds of incarcerated men and women were arrested again within three years of their release. Of those re-arrested, more than half occurred by the end of the first year. Re-entry programs are important to help incarcerated persons successfully transition to their communities and to stop the cycle of arrest, incarceration, release and re-arrest.
