Arlene Reed-Delaney, M.D., is leading a coalition of organizations that are dedicated to creating jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities for ex-prisoners. It is a goal of this coalition to break the crime/poverty cycle that results in recidivism. The role of CLSI is to bring The Balancing Act's career training to increase ex-prisoners' job skills and offer the new Starters' program to increase successful business launches. Our goal is not only to significantly reduce recidivism, but also to create a positive cycle of service and wealth creation in economically-depressed neighborhoods.
