National Institute of Justice Releases White Papers Addressing Important Challenges in Reentry
The U.S. Department of Justice's National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has kicked off a series of white papers that address important challenges in the reentry arena, including the payment of fines and fees, securing employment, and access to human services post-release.
The Addressing Challenges in Reentry and Human Services page currently features three new white papers:
- Recruitment, Assessment, and Retention in the Direct Care Workforce for Individuals with Criminal Records: A Comprehensive Model Approach, which identifies strategies for connecting individuals with criminal records who do not pose an unreasonable risk to public safety to long-term employment in the rapidly growing health care sector
- 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
- 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.
