Project Safe Neighborhood/Welcome and Smart Re-entry

Background

Led by the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of Wisconsin, this 3-year interdisciplinary project is aimed at preventing violent crime recidivism among men who are returning to Milwaukee from prison. All participants are at high risk for re-offending and will receive an array of evidence-informed and innovative services such as trauma screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (i.e., T-SBIRT). The ICFW program evaluation, conducted in partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin, will include process- and outcome-oriented components. The process evaluation will emerge from an interactive and monitoring design and contribute both to program fidelity and quality. The outcome evaluation results, derived from quasi-experimental and experimental designs, will provide insight into potential program effects.
