A friend sent me this link to this latest analysis of the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) from an NIJ grant. The full summary is available with results and good data and survey responses. Here's the major paragraph, but go read the whole thing. It's not long.
Part of the evaluation of the SVORI programs is based on prisoners’ responses to questions about the services they need after they are released from prison. The most commonly reported reentry needs were more education, general financial assistance, a driver’s license, job training, and employment.
