The city's Department of Family and Support Services on Wednesday announced a new program designed to support the housing needs of people returning home from prison, according to a news release. The Selected Pre-Release for Intensive Navigation support Going Forward (SPRING) program will help those returning home from prison with "housing and employment navigation," according to the news release. “As part of our comprehensive community safety plan, reducing recidivism rates is a significant move towards creating an alternative vision of community safety while disrupting the cycle of incarceration,” Mayor Brandon Johnson said in the release. “Providing pathways to returning residents is a critical step in supporting that plan, and supporting those who have progressed through the system and are facing enormous hurdles as they return to their communities.” Additional information is available online.
