The Ugly Fact is that the American faith community offers both risks and rewards. One of its main risks is the leadership’s lack of intervention in circumstances that breed juvenile delinquency and adult criminal behavior (e.g., family violence). Despite its risks, involvement in the faith community improves any number of lifestyle measures, including health, mental health, and problem behavior. The faith community is poised to advance these advantages beyond the primarily female clientele it now serves, to include comprehensive delinquency prevention programming. The question of what is taking so long remains. Join The Ugly Facts With Dr. Jenn as we shine the searchlight on the American Faith Community's role in the prison pipeline.
