Mat-Su Reentry Coalition Spring 2023 Reentry Simulation

The Reentry Simulation is a participatory activity that seeks to raise awareness about the process of reentering the community from a correctional institution, and to educate participants about the barriers and challenges associated with reentry. This hands-on activity will put participants into the role of a reentrant where one must balance decisions regarding accessing social services, entering into the workforce, obtaining identification, and finding housing while simultaneously complying with supervision and managing limited resources.

The Space is limited! Please RSVP to Barbara Mongar by April 12th at Barbara.mongar@valleycharities.org
