Despite the severe barriers of the population served by New Start, our work is having an impact and recidivism is being reduced. From October 2013 – February 2019, the following results have been achieved:  

  • 108 medium to high risk/high need individuals on probation or parole have been enrolled in the New Start program 

  • 73 individuals have graduated 

  • 66 of the 73 graduates have secured employment (90% placement rate) 

  • 78% of program graduates have not been reconvicted

  • At the cost of $36,232 per year to house an inmate in Delaware’s prisons, the graduates who are sustaining success are saving the State of Delaware over $1.5M per year and are now contributing, tax-paying citizens
