WISR is a partnership-based project that creates safer and healthier communities by reducing criminal recidivism among men returning to the community from jail and prison. A fragmented system of reentry takes an enormous toll on society and individuals reentering the community. WISR is committed to transforming that system in order to improve public safety and public health, while reducing the cost to taxpayers. WISR provides evidence-based assessments, intensive case management and treatment coordination to help participants access gainful employment, stable housing, social services, and health care.
WISR is led by Advocates with funding from the Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts.
