The Road to Reentry Workshop is a free training to lay out the steps, necessary legal information, and provide attendees with the resources to assist individuals in achieving a successful transition from incarceration back to their communities. 


The Basic Workshop will feature a Know Your Rights training on how your rights will be impacted and how they must be exercised when you have a criminal record.


The Train-the-Trainer portion of the event will be directed towards social service providers who work with clients in reentry as a means of arming them with the tools to help their clients navigate the legal barriers they face daily.



Training topics will include:

  • Identifying and navigating legal barriers including OTH discharges 
  • Obtaining identification cards
  • Accessing public benefits
  • Reuniting with family members.
