Second Chance Month 2023: Save the Date
April 2023 is Second Chance Month
Each April, the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs (OJP) celebrates Second Chance Month, recognizing the importance of helping individuals, communities, and agencies across the country appreciate their role in supporting the safe and successful reentry of millions of people returning from incarceration each year. Second Chance Month aims to inform and highlight the many opportunities for state, local, and tribal governments and community-based service providers to build meaningful second chances for our returning community members.
During Second Chance Month, the National Reentry Resource Center (NRRC) will be the nation’s one-stop destination to learn more about the events and resources throughout April. These events, including webinars, and resources such as publications, videos, and more, are designed to support Second Chance Act (SCA) grantees and communities around the country in planning, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining reentry programs and practices that support individuals transitioning from incarceration as well as their families.
The NRRC is hosting Second Chance Month and working in partnership with OJP's Bureau of Justice Assistance and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, and with SCA training and technical assistance providers, to share offerings that cover a range of topics essential to successful reentry, including education, employment, housing, behavioral health, and family engagement.
