Alpha USA through collaboration with other faith based and community organizations offer re-entry services to the criminal justice system. Based upon proven faith based models of re-entry, which have demonstrated a dramatic reduction in recidivism rates for participating inmates, the program is provided by volunteers and locally coordinated. Generally speaking each prison warden would attest to the fact that there are more Faithbased volunteers requesting access to their prison than they have time or space to accommodate. Should they be candid, they would divulge that in terms of recidivism of offenders many of these programs do very little. The programs are not strategically coordinated to work together nor for that matter with the goals of the prison. The primary criticism however, is that few to none of the programs have a re-entry component to assist offenders once they are released.
