Providing for both the safety needs of the community and the reintegrative needs of the offender released from prison is a major challenge for community corrections in democratic societies. In fact, residential programs for offenders returning to society play a crucial role in reintegration in England and Wales, Canada, and the United States, where community-based organizations have created programs and services to assist offenders during their transition from institution to community. Although these programs have been widely accepted and appreciated, however, there has been little or no research to validate the claims made for these efforts. There has been even less opportunity for the exchange of best practices in the management of residential services.
