Stories of Re-entry
Sunday July 28, 1pm
Many think the largest barrier to incarcerated people are the fences of the institution, but this is not true. Release from incarceration is not a guarantee of success. The strategy of supporting someone in maintaining their freedom isn’t a paint-by-numbers process either. (...)We will discuss barriers people face upon release, and the tools, programs, and measures that have helped individuals who are returning become successful, to assess what is necessary for re-entry work to be sustained and grow.

Resilience is usually the by-product of trauma. Individuals navigating insurmountable issues develop strength, resolve and tenacity.
