In this workshop, we’ll talk about how we utilize Housing First values to build a synergetic partnership with the Vermont Department of Corrections (DOC), a practice we think can be replicated. Through this ever evolving partnership, we support people leaving incarceration to re-acclimate to independent living and reintegrate into their communities, including building (and sometimes reconnecting with) natural supports.
We’ll discuss common challenges people face when leaving incarceration and reintegrating into the community, including the impact of institutionalization on mental health and the importance of balancing personal autonomy with accountability to one’s community. Through the power of human connection and mutual relationships between Pathways, DOC, and the individual, we are able to build genuine, dynamic relationships that are transformative for all of us.
