Julie Kempker, re-entry manager for the Missouri Department of Corrections says, “There are people in prison who have talent like you wouldn’t believe. We have solid data that says that those who leave prison and maintain employment are less likely to return to prison. And the data says that when they are out and working they are not committing crime.”
