Although the recidivism rate (i.e., percentage who return to prison in three years) is 46%,
for those who participate in a faith-based programming the rate is about 20%. Our current recidivism rate of our graduates is 7%.
By keeping one returning citizen from returning to prison, we save the taxpayer over $28,500 per year.
Currently, the incarcerated from over 40 counties in Tennessee have applied for admission to our
re-entry center.
TPOM has been able to place over 90% of our graduates in a job within ten days.
Our average starting salary in 2017 was $15.50 per hour.
