Program Outcomes

The focus of our programming is on employment and mentoring, however, the ultimate goal is life transformation and restoration, resulting in a changed trajectory in the life of our participants.

While outcomes will vary over time and may be difficult to measure, the programs of 70×7 Life Recovery are intended to provide the following benefits:


For The Communities We Operate In

  • A significantly lower recidivism rate compared to national and state averages (our historical recidivism rate ranges between 3% to 6%)
  • Reduced crime rates (the low recidivism rate reduces a community’s crime rate)
  • An increase in tax revenues (the wages earned by our participants result in federal, state and local taxes being paid)
  • A reduction in the cost of government assistance (working participants require less government assistance)
  • A reduction in government provided child support (working participants who have children are able to pay for their children’s support through wage withholding)
  • A reduction in incarceration and judicial costs (court costs, prosecuting and defense costs, policing costs) due to our low rate of recidivism
  • Greater community awareness of the barriers faced by the formerly incarcerated (95% of those incarcerated return to the community they are from at some point in time)

For The Participants We Work With

  • Improved job readiess
  • Improved job retention
  • Improved ability to make better choices and decisions
  • Improved financial stability
  • Improved interpersonal skills
  • Improved relationships
  • Spiritual growth
