The Kansas City Crime Commission’s Second Chance Program
A successful transition from prison to productive citizen is not something that can be accomplished without assistance. Host Allie Bush talks with Ron Smith, Executive Director of the Second Chance Program and Brittany Peterson a Resource Specialist with the program about what they do to help those citizens returning to society from prison. Their efforts start behind bars and follow the individual through release where they find resources to help in the reintegration into society.
The Second Chance Program also includes the Greater Kansas City Reentry Coalition of service providers, government agencies and civic and religious groups. The coalition has identified the major stumbling blocks such as employment, housing, health care, and transportation and formed committees to address them.
