Breaking the Cycle

Transcript and podcast from The Law Report, ABC Radio National, 4 January 2011:
For years Bethlehem House, a homeless men's shelter in Hobart, was the first port of call for many released prisoners. But without life skills or support, a big percentage soon reverted to crime.
In response, the shelter got proactive. Case workers spend time in jail with prisoners, identifying their problems and needs. And upon release these are addressed and stable accommodation provided.
The results? Very impressive!
