Every day, people are discharged from jails and prisons with little or no access to stable housing. Federal policies and community practices provide a patchwork of assistance and support, but those exiting the corrections system remain at very high risk of homelessness. Presenters will identify best practices and funding sources to bridge re-entry gaps, and discuss avenues for improving public policy.
