Returning to the community from jail or prison is a complex transition for most offenders, as well as for their families and communities. Upon reentering society, former offenders are likely to struggle with substance abuse, lack of adequate education and job skills, limited housing options, and mental health issues.
Join the conversation at Salons at Stowe when we discuss Coming Home After Prison: A New Reality with featured guests Rev. Jeff Grant, Progressive Prison Project/Innocent Spouse Project and LaResse Harvey, A Better Way Foundation. Come learn more about reentering society after prison and how you can create change on this issue, and have your voice heard!
The program is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required but are strongly encouraged: Info@StoweCenter.org or 860-522-9258, ext. 317
