Abstract: The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of the Life Learning Center program through a descriptive quantitative study. This study will look at the exit-interviews done by ninety-two individuals at the end of the twelve week course. Participants will self report on various areas of their life at the end of the program. These areas in question will look at income, mental and physical health treatment, Substance Use Disorder Recovery, and how effective the program was in their lives. This will be helpful in looking at the impact of community reentry programs and the impact they have on recidivism in Covington, Kentucky, United States of America. Research is lacking in this area for individuals in the United States where these programs are less popular.
