In order to help address the complex and varied challenges formerly incarcerated individuals and their families encounter, this educational forum is designed to enhance the capacity of community-based human services agencies and faith-based organizations to provide comprehensive services to individuals and their families impacted by the criminal justice system. Providers will learn about approaches and specific programs that have worked as well as how to mitigate certain barriers and challenges that they will encounter in working with formerly incarcerated individuals and their families. In addition, providers can bring participants who have been formerly incarcerated to learn about additional services as well as share their first-hand knowledge and experiences about their successes and the ongoing challenges that they face. There will be ample opportunity for service providers as well as program participants to network throughout the day in order to learn more about programs and services.

  • Keynote Speaker: Tina Reynolds, Co-Founder of WORTH
