Hosted by the Urban Institute and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance and National Institute of Corrections
The Urban Institute has collaborated with the National Institute of Corrections, Bureau of Justice Assistance, Community Works, and subject-matter experts to develop actionable, low-cost, high-impact model practices and activities that can reduce the barriers to contact and communication between incarcerated parents and their children: Model Practices for Parents in Jail and Prison: Reducing Barriers to Family Connections.
The partners will select up to five sites to implement the model practices and receive receive targeted training and technical assistance. Eligible sites include all US correctional facilities—including jails and prisons, in urban and rural settings, and of varying security levels and incarcerated populations—interested in implementing these model practices. This informational webinar will give attendees the chance to learn more about the opportunity to participate and to ask questions about the site selection process.
