For managers and developers of housing in New York State, our next installment of the “Are You Ready” webinar series will take place on January 31 from 10-11:30 a.m. ET. The webinar, Serving a Criminal Justice-Involved Population in Supportive Housing, is free and registration can be accessed by clicking here.
In recent years, New York has advanced criminal justice reform, yet the question of housing for households with histories of justice-involvement remains insufficiently addressed. Systemic barriers to affordable housing with appropriate services leave far too many households with few or no options for avoiding homelessness or a return to incarceration. This webinar will bring together leaders from local government, development organizations and non-profits to discuss current efforts and proven practices for developing supportive housing and providing effective services to a criminal justice-involved population.
