Second Chance Center
There are more than 46,000 people incarcerated in Arizona. Of those, 92% will remain in Arizona once they have completed their sentences. In an effort to create safer communities, Governor Ducey has empowered Arizona agencies to connect soon-to-be-released offenders and ex-offenders with resources that will help them to live successful, crime-free lives. Helping former inmates to become gainfully employed and providing them with the tools they need to remain and advance in their employment, is key to the Governor's "25/10" initiative goal, which would reduce Arizona's recidivism rate by 25% over the next 10 years.
