Breaking Barriers to Re-entry: Housing, Jobs & Services
In the District, an estimated 60,000 people have criminal records and about 8,000 of them return to the city each year after serving sentences in prison or jail â€” some to immediate homelessness.
Join CNHED and our distinguished panelists for a presentation on strategies to support citizens returning from incarceration.
We'll start with an overview of re-entry in DC and how it affects DC residents and neighborhoods.
Learn from practitioners about
â€¢ Developing and operating housing for returning citizens, including a review of funding and zoning issues
â€¢ Job training & other services for returning citizens
â€¢ Financial security for returning citizens
