VOICES FROM THE FIELD: MAJOR GAPS & UNMET NEEDS IN REENTRY & BEST PRACTICES FOR STARTING A REENTRY PROGRAM
Today, Root & Rebound is proud to share its first publication, Voices From the Field: Major Gaps & Unmet Needs in Reentry & Best Practices for Starting a Reentry Program. This report is based on interviews conducted by Root & Rebound’s founding staff members about the current landscape of reentry. Over 70 practitioners in the field of reentry were interviewed for this project–including attorneys, social workers, formerly incarcerated advocates, educators, and academics–working in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, CA and in New York City.
This report is intended to summarize the key lessons from these interviews into two parts: (1) the unmet gaps & needs in reentry and (2) best practices for starting (or reworking) your reentry program.
We hope that the report is inspiring and educational for all!
