Project Team: Recipe for Reentry Success
In 2001, Ogden's eight-block Weed and Seed site had one of the highest concentrations of adult offenders on probation or parole in Utah—nearly 12 percent of the entire population. In many cases, an apartment building would have 3 of 4 units rented to offenders, and parole officers had caseloads that exceeded 40 adults.
