People who reenter communities from prison are at much higher risk of homelessness because their criminal records create barriers to housing, social services, and employment. People of color are disproportionately affected by this trend. Without stable housing and employment, risk of criminal recidivism and reincarceration rises dramatically. This workshop will highlight innovations at the state and local levels that end the recidivism cycle for people reentering. It will also explain how communities can access federal resources to improve their own reentry responses.
