Engaging Families in Reentry and Demonstrating Improved Outcomes for Family Members of Returning Fathers

November 3, 2015

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center with Funding Support from the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance

Research on reentry outcomes finds that nurture, support, and attachment to family members help to facilitate a successful return to the community and reduce recidivism. However, criminal justice and community-based agencies encounter many barriers to engaging family members. Furthermore, fatherhood programs in particular often struggle with demonstrating the impact of their services from the perspective of the returning fathers as well as their children and co-parents. This webinar discusses these challenges and reviews innovative strategies and approaches to measuring the outcomes of family-focused programming in reentry.
