April 19, 2022, 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm, Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, the National Reentry Resource Center, and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

Building and maintaining family relationships is an essential part of a person’s reentry, yet family members often experience trauma, financial difficulties, and other challenges due to incarceration. In this webinar, presenters will discuss strategies for supporting parents who are incarcerated and their families, including engaging children’s caregivers in reentry planning and incorporating families’ voices in program implementation. The webinar will also address the importance of purposeful and sustainable partnerships between community organizations and correctional agencies to effectively serve families.

Speakers:

  • Ann Adalist-Estrin, Director, The National Resource Center on Children and Families of the Incarcerated
  • Valerie Carpico, Senior Policy Analyst, Corrections and Reentry, CSG Justice Center
