Project

A Family-Support Model for Community Supervision of Reentering Offenders
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

APPA in a subcontracting role collaborated with Family Justice, Inc. to develop and pilot test curricula to advance the knowledge and skills of community corrections professionals in engaging the families of offenders. Project staff convened a focus group of practitioners who met twice to identify content and presentation methods for each of two curricula, one for managers and administrators and one for supervisors and line staff. Project staff refined the curricula and pilot tested each one twice.
