MARCH 11, 2019: REENTRY PRIMER FOR TRIBAL COURTS
One individual’s incarceration impacts the entire community, as every person’s role is important for the community’s livelihood. Reentry is a process assisted by programs to help formerly incarcerated individuals prepare to be active, contributing members of the community. These programs address the needs of offenders by reconnecting tribal members with the community and offering career readiness programs, vocational training, and designated housing upon release.
