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. This informational webinar will discuss this project, Model Practices for Parents in Jail and Prison: Reducing Barriers to Family Connections, and give attendees the chance to learn more about participating and ask questions about the site selection process.
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 U.S. 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.
