It is a common misnomer that former offenders are perpetually dangerous. In fact, this is largely untrue. In May 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice released the report, Recidivism of Sex Offenders Released from State Prison: A 9-Year Follow-Up (2005-2014) shows that people convicted of sex offenses are actually much less likely than people convicted of other offenses to be rearrested or to go back to prison.
The Reset Missouri program is designed for men being released from incarceration for a sex offense conviction; men who will also be required to register as sex offenders. The sex offender treatment program for the state of Missouri is located in Farmington, so this will most likely be the largest source of referrals. There is also a federal prison in Missouri that houses convicted offenders. And there may be referrals from other states for those that wish to be released to Missouri. These men will apply for the program, be interviewed by Reset Missouri staff, agree to the terms of the program, and if they meet our criteria, be invited to live in our transitional life settings.
The home(s) will be located in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Residents will live in a communal environment; specifically, in private or shared bedrooms according to occupancy requirements. Initially, we expect there to be room for just 8-15 residents, but that capacity will grow over time to fill the great need that exists.
