African American male ex-offenders struggle with lack of assistance during their transition from incarceration, and they encounter many barriers when returning back into the community. The purpose of this general qualitative study was to explore the perceptions of whether a reentry program impacted African American male ex-off enders’ likelihood of recidivating within 1 year. The findings indicated that the reentry program enhanced participants’ well-being, improved their communication, and increased their resourcefulness. Findings may be used to develop and improve reentry programs to promote better reentry outcomes and safer communities.
