Faith-based Learning Exchange: Incarceration to Community
The Learning Exchange idea started with a small group of people chatting about the challenges men and women face when they come out of Pr*son back into community. Knowing the challenges - finding housing and work, doing programs, reconnecting with family - how do we become more welcoming and create 'safe landings' for the transition? Faith-based groups can take the lead in this! Come and hear of successes and challenges, talk with others from faith groups and community at large, and share ideas for supporting those moving from incarceration to community.
