WesTCORE is a collaborative effort by non-profit organizations, faith based groups, government agencies, and concerned citizens united to address the prisoner re-entry challenges in West Tennessee.  Thousands (2,000-2,500) of men and women are released from prison each year in West Tennessee. We spend up to $100 a day to keep them in prison and near nothing to try to keep them out. It is no surprise that 50% will return to prison within three years of release.
