Statistical Report

Statistical information and successes since 1/2013

Presently, 766 client files in office: 329 clients have served Prison sentences, 400 clients are former Midland County Jail inmates, 37 are ATV clients.

Employment assistance: In 2018 MCFOAR has placed 84 clients with employment, assisted 51 with housing,  either move in or emergency rent.

Many other clients of MCFOAR are on Social Security Disability, Social Security Income, Pensions, or have found work on their own or had opportunities available to them after incarceration.

* Employment and Housing are the major predictors of whether a former offender will reoffend.

Statistical information and successes for the three-year period: 9/17/15 – 9/17/18

Note: MCFOAR uses this three-year measurement because the State and National figures are based on a two-year period.

MCFOAR has received 137 former prison inmates, as clients since July 16, 2015. Of those only 10 are now incarcerated in our State Prison System. Our recidivism rate for MCFOAR former prison clients is 7.3%

The reduction in recidivism rate is a substantial savings to the citizens of Midland County regarding Midland County Jail housing cost, law enforcement judicial system, and most importantly the lower number of victims in our community. All of this makes Midland a safer and more attractive area to businesses and new residents.

Statistics related to cost of housing MDOC prison inmates

The average cost of housing 1 prisoner for 1 year in the Michigan State Prison System is up to $47,000.
