2017 RCNJ Conference


RCNJ would like to thank all who attended their 2017 conference, “Homelessness and Prisoner Reentry: Examining Barrier to Housing Stability and Evidence Based Strategies that Promote Improved Outcomes”, on June 22, 2017.  Overall, we were pleased to see healthy exchanges across fields and disciplines as it pertained to improving outcomes for some of society’s most overlooked and underserved individuals.  We sincerely hope everyone in attendance walked away with some piece of new information or knowledge that could be shared!
