Promoting healthy Activity Spaces of Returning Prisoners

Residential change may serve as a turning point for those who want to desist from offending or minimize visibility as a “known” offender by law enforcement and neighbors. The concept of activity spaces, or how people use and move about space, can extend our understanding of the meaning of place for returning prisoners.

Nature and Context

Choices of where to live are often dictated more by limited housing options than by preferred neighborhood characteristics. In addition, people are more or less stably housed upon release, and more or less socially tied to places. Still, much of the established research relies on residential neighborhood as a construct. There is a typology of three types of activity spaces that are common among returning prisoners: neighborhood-anchored, utility- or affective-anchored, and unanchored activity spaces. These activity spaces reflect their relationship to place and varying levels of connection to a “neighborhood.”
