“Offenders: The Challenges to Reentry and Reintegration,” is tomorrow!

Join us for our monthly forum and discuss this rising social problem. Reentry and reintegration has become crucially important to Boulder County because, those released from the county jail are integrated back into our neighborhoods. Listen to our knowledgeable panelist discuss what we can do to help assist these offenders back into the community safely. With collaboration, we can enhance community safety, help offenders find jobs and housing so they are off the streets, and better the living environment for all. After all, we are all humans and all make mistakes and the recidivism rate of 70% proves that jail isn’t the answer anymore.
