Reentry is Relational

Just a note about some good work coming out the Family Justice Program, now located at the Vera Institute of Justice: the program is currently coordinating "Reentry is Relational," which helps corrections and other public safety entities harness the power of family and other social connections to help reentrants integrate more successfully into society. As the group notes, "Corrections and community corrections staff who consider returning individuals in the context of their families and social networks better understand both their challenges and the resources available to help them to make the transition successful."
