This webinar discusses the critical importance of providing effective re-entry programs for incarcerated persons who are preparing to leave prison. Through the description of two re-entry programs including the Aftercare Program and Joseph House, it illustrates that the support offered by such programs is vital to the long-term success of persons re-entering society.
