 It’s Re-Entry Week 2021 | April 26-30!

Welcome to Reentry Week 2021! (From the NRRC Website)

“During the week of April 26–30, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) are shining a light on the importance of reentry and the responsibility we all have—as federal, state, and local agencies, as partners across the country working in reentry, and as citizens—to understand why reentry matters and how to set communities and neighbors up for success. 

Over the course of the week, the National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) and the Second Chance Act training and technical assistance providers will bring you resources in the form of podcasts, publications, webinars, and more. These materials will blend research supported content with practical considerations and lived experience. As a Reentry Week participant, you will hear about employment and education, behavioral health and housing, youth and families, making reentry work, and the importance of evaluation. You will hear from experts and people with lived experience. Thank you for joining us and we hope you enjoy all that Reentry Week has to offer.” Click here to learn more about Reentry in Beaver County and read local success stories.
