Vineyard Forum on Re-Entry


January 2009

Over 25 advocates for formerly incarcerated persons re-entering society gathered at the Vineyard Community Church’s Healing Center on Nov. 11, 2008 for a major forum which addressed critical re-entry needs and issues. Issues such as the increased need for labor force training for formerly incarcerated individuals were raised. Panelists at the re-entry forum agreed to continue meeting very regularly to ensure continuity of ideas and assistance, as organizations seek to intensity help for formerly incarcerated individuals.
