: Getting in the Weeds of Reentry Needs: How Community Partners Improve Reentry Outcomes
Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2023 | 2:00 PM ET
Description: Collaboration between prisons, jails, and community providers is essential at every stage of the incarceration process, from initial custody to preparing for reentry and post-release. Establishing partnerships helps ensure a safe and supportive environment, avoids service duplication, facilitates access to essential resources, and ultimately plays a crucial role in preventing recidivism, benefiting both individuals and the broader community. Service providers based in the communities where formerly incarcerated people return know best how to access local resources and the challenges associated with service delivery.

This webinar will provide a deeper view into how and why community partners provide critical reentry supports. Using real-world examples from the Access to Recovery program in Massachusetts, we'll explore how community partners work with formerly incarcerated people with substance use disorders to provide wraparound supports for reentry and recovery. RSAT providers will be encouraged to consider the unique reentry support needs in your community and begin to draft a plan for addressing those needs through intentional community partnerships with local service providers.

Learning Objectives: After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how community partnerships improve reentry outcomes
  • Brainstorm and identify essential reentry supports needed in your community to improve reentry outcomes
  • Create actionable first steps for prioritizing existing partnerships or creating new partnerships for reentry suppor
