Eizadirad, A., Chambers, T. N., & Brown, S. B. (2024). Amadeusz’s Prosper: Effective reintegration of adults facing firearm-related charges in Ontario, Canada. Advances in Social Sciences Research Journal11(5), 272–289. https://doi.org/10.14738/assrj.115.17008 


ABSTRACT This study evaluates the impact of Amadeusz’ Prosper program which supports individuals with firearm-related charges between the ages of 18 to 29 in Ontario, Canada. Prosper offers intensive case management through caseworkers who cocreate tailored support plans with participants based on their immediate needs and long-term goals. The program supports individuals during incarceration and postrelease once back in community. This study engaged 44 participants through interviews conducted between October 2022 and April 2023. Participants included program beneficiaries (n=29), family members (n=8), community partners (n=4), and caseworkers (n=3). Intersectionality and Critical Race Theory paradigms were applied as part of data analysis to uncover the program's impact, strengths, and barriers in implementation. Results showed a correlation between the program and positive outcomes in personal development, well-being, and reintegration of participants. Overall, the study contributes to filling in the research gap offering nuanced insights into how to support individuals with firearm-related charges in Canada as part of offering more effective reintegration supports and reducing recidivism.
