  2. Child Support and Reentry, which is focused on what social scientists and policy analysts have learned about how child support, criminal justice, and reentry are related
  3. The Role of Human Service Providers During Community Supervision, which examines the intersection between community supervision and the human service needs of people on probation, parole, and pretrial release.
